A WATER pipe has burst at Worcestershire Royal Hospital, causing flooding on two floors.

Firefighters were called to the hospital to help deal with the flood water earlier this afternoon.

The hospital’s chief operating officer Stewart Messer said at about 3pm the flow of water from the burst pipe in the endoscopy unit had been halted.

He said: “There has been minimal impact to patients although we are still assessing potential damage to equipment.”
