Burst pipes leaves thousands of Melton residents without water

Have your say

Schools in Melton have been forced to close today (Friday) after thousands of people were left without water due to burst water pipes.

John Ferneley College and St Mary’s CE Primary School were among those with no water supply.

Severn Trent Water said a burst water pipe was discovered in Ab Kettleby yesterday (Thursday) and another today (Friday).

It said its workers were ‘working round the clock to get the pipes fixed and everything back to normal as quickly as possible’ for those affected customers.
