Broadway water supplies back after days

Bottled water in Broadway Severn Trent has given out bottled water since the problems began

Water supplies have been restored to residents in a Worcestershire village - 10 days after they were cut off because of fears they were polluted.

Severn Trent officials had to hand out bottled water to people in Broadway after the water became discoloured and was found to have an unusual taste.

Engineers found a cracked pipe was letting in standing water and polluting the system. The firm has apologised.

The company said water supplies returned at about 22:00 GMT on Monday.

Officials said all customers had now received a letter saying the water was safe to drink.

Company representatives were also due to be outside the village's Horse and Hound Inn on Tuesday to answer any questions.

Customers will be credited with £25.
