Severn Trent Water has brought in tankers to top up mains supplies in south west Cheltenham after a major mains burst this morning. The 24-inch main fractured under a field in Brookfield Road, Churchdown.
At the moment there is no indication when supplies will be restored to all the properties affected. At least 18 schools remain closed.
"We're now starting to move water around our network of pipes and we already have tankers full of water ready and waiting to fill up the pipes. There is the possibility that supplies may be a bit murky, which is nothing to worry about and will clear. This is just a result of the way we're moving our water around the pipes, although we understand that you might not want to drink it."
