A LEAK has been gushing water onto a pavement in Malvern for five days.

The water leak on Worcester Road in Great Malvern has been discharging water since midday on Friday (February 23).

Luke Coles, water networks regional lead at Severn Trent, said: "We've received a report of a water leak on Worcester Road that our teams have been out to investigate and now have scheduled to make a repair as soon as possible.

"Due to the location of the pipe, the work needs to be planned in using two-way traffic lights, so teams can safely begin the repair."

Severn Trent is speaking to the council on getting a permit to mend the water leak which can take a few days.
