ANOTHER water problem saw Malvern residents left cut-off.

Residents reported losing their water supply in the town and Severn Trent has apologised for the inconvenience.

A spokesman said: "We’d like to apologise to the small number of residents in Great Malvern who may have experience low or no water pressure last Thursday following planned maintenance on the network.

"Our teams attended the site and quickly identified the issue and supply has been restored.

"Again, we’re really sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused, and we’d like to thank residents for their patience."

A number of residents were left without water on September 23 and 24 in what is the latest in a series of incidents in the town.

Cllr Beverley Nielsen, who has previously voiced concerns over water issues in the town, said: "It is very disappointing to hear of yet more service interruptions for customers.

"It has been helped a little by the fact they were short-term in duration affecting a small number of homes and useful communications have been established with Severn Trent who have been prompt in responding to my requests for further information on behalf of our residents.

"I am following up with the company and very much hope we are through the worst of the interruptions we have seen in Malvern in recent months."

In July and August, burst water mains saw leaks in Albert Road North, one of which flooded the garden of the nearby Malvern Cube and left residents cut off for hours.

At the time, Severn Trent promised to investigate the cause of the problems, with the same pipe bursting slightly further down each time.
