TO top off the problems caused by flooding across Burton, Severn Trent Water also had to deal with a burst mains water tap causing havoc in Swadlincote.

The main waterline in Woodhouse Road started flooding the street yesterday morning, creating a river of water spilling out onto Derby Road.

Tailbacks were caused by the burst as three Severn Trent teams dug up the road and attempted to fix the problem.

Severn Trent said the incident had nothing to do with the day's downpours.

A spokesman for Severn Trent said: "We'd like to reassure our customers that we are doing everything that we can do deal with issues as quickly as possible and ask them for their patience during this time."
