A MAJOR water leak on a main road through Stroud has been fixed.

The leak, which happened close to the roundabout on Rowcroft in Stroud this morning, was caused by a faulty stop tap cover.

A Severn Trent spokesperson said: “Our teams have attended and fixed a faulty stop tap cover that was causing there to be some water in the road this morning.

"We’re sorry for any inconvenience, but everything was fixed and back to normal at 10am this morning.”.
