Bottled water will continue to be handed out in parts of Shropshire today despite the supply being restored to the majority of homes affected by a burst water main.

Severn Trent Water says the problem has now been fixed to seventeen and a half thousand homes, but continued work may result in low pressure in some places.

It comes after one of the biggest water pipes supplying Telford cracked over the weekend causing water supply issues for many in the area.
