Severn Trent tells Broadway villagers to boil tap water

People in a Worcestershire village have been asked to boil their tap water following reports to Severn Trent of discolouration.

The firm said customers in Broadway should boil tap water before drinking it, cleaning their teeth, making ice or for food preparation.

There has been a change of taste and colour in the water in the area too, a spokesperson said.

It is thought it could take three days to clear up.

Engineers are working to resolve the problem and the company has apologised for any inconvenience.
