A WATER leak which closed a busy city road has been repaired - but the road is still closed.

Earlier today (Saturday, November 4), it was confirmed that Malvern Road had closed at the junction of Whites Road due to a water leak, which required emergency work from Severn Trent.

A Severn Trent spokesperson has said the leak is repaired and the priority is to get the road back to normal as soon as possible.
