Amber Valley burst pipe causes water shortage

A burst main has left parts of Amber Valley in Derbyshire without water.

The leak involved hundreds of thousands of litres of water and was traced to Saw Mills, near Belper, by Severn Trent engineers.

A number of schools were closed because of the water shortage.
