Seven schools closed after burst water main in Worcestershire

Seven schools have been forced to close after a burst water main in Worcestershire.

The fractured pipe in Redditch has cut off supplies to local homes as well as schools in nearby areas, including Arrow Vale, Church Hill and Ipsley.

A video posted on social media posted by Worcestershire County Council showed water pouring out of the burst main on to a roundabout on Warwick Highway.

Severn Trent apologised for the disruption caused by the burst pipe.
