Burst water main in West Midlands affects dozens

Engineers were called to a burst water main near a West Midlands roundabout in the early hours which has affected dozens of customers.

Fifty calls were made in about an hour over the incident near junction 2 of the M5, but it was possible more people were affected, South Staffs Water said.

A spokeswoman said it was trying to isolate the burst before looking to restore customers' supplies.

She said there were no diversions over the incident in the Oldbury area.
