GREENLANDS Business Centre has been flooded and hundreds of homes have been left without power after a burst water main.

The leak, outside the business park, happened around 2am this morning.

Studley Road has also flooded and is down to a single lane with drivers being urged to avoid the area if possible.

A spokesman for Severn Trent said: “We’re happy to say that the majority of customers in the Redditch area should have their water supply back on now.

"For those that haven’t, we can see from our technology that pressures are rising in the area and so water is starting to come back.

"However, it will take a couple of hours for water to refill all of the pipes, it is a big system, so we’re asking our customers to bear with us just a little longer."

They added: “We’re so sorry for the inconvenience we know this will have caused - we want to reassure you that we are doing absolutely everything we can to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
