Mackworth water supplies restored after mains burst

Water supplies have been restored to thousands of homes in Derbyshire after a water main burst.

Severn Trent Water said the main pipe under the A52 in Mackworth was damaged at about 1900 BST on Monday.

About 5,000 customers were left without water or with low water pressure for four hours while the pipe was isolated.

The A52 was closed for several hours and temporary traffic lights will remain in operation until repairs to the pipe and road are completed.
