Wa­ter shock for mo­torists

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

WA­TER shot 30ft into the air in a gi­ant fountain when a main burst on a busy road in Great Barr this week.

Driv­ers were warned to avoid Chapel Lane, Great Barr, when the burst hap­pened on Tues­day morn­ing.

Eye-wit­ness Dar­ren Straf­ford wrote: “Stay away from Chapel Lane, Barr Bea­con.

“Huge sink hole and burst wa­ter main wa­ter ten inches deep al­ready and get­ting worse.”

A South Staffs Wa­ter spokesman said a hand­ful of cus­tomers suf­fered a tem­po­rary loss of wa­ter and low pres­sure. En­gi­neers were later at the scene, car­ry­ing out re­pairs, and no one was hurt.
