Peter Edney, from Severn Trent Water, said the company is "taking it really seriously", and will investigate the cause of the burst as soon as it can reach the broken part.
"Our real priority at the moment is to dig down to that pipe, get the broken part out, get a new piece in so we can get everyone's supplies back on, and return to normal," he said."It's a 24in pipe, so it's a pretty big pipe."In 2016, about 20,000 homes were left without running water for 12 hours following a burst main in the same village.
