A BURST water main has closed a Herefordshire primary school.

A spokesperson said Much Marcle CE Primary School is closed today (March 7) due to a burst water main affecting water in Much Marcle and surrounding areas.


A Welsh Water spokesperson said the burst main is currently affecting Putley, Much Marcle, Rushall, Lyne Down, and surrounding areas of Ledbury and Tarrington.

The supplier said they are aware of the burst on the network and that people in the area may experience low pressure or no water.

"We expect all supplies to be fully restored by later this morning," the spokesperson said.
