RESIDENTS in a county village have complained about "yellow water" coming from their taps.

On a Facebook community group, many members commented on the unusual colour in Little Marcle.

Zoe Owen said: "Has anybody else got yellow water in Little Marcle?"

Rocky Luther said: "Mine is always yellow."

According to the Severn Trent's website, the colour can be caused by "the disturbance of naturally occurring sediment in the supply.

"This disturbance is caused by a sudden change in the direction or flow rate of water.

"This can occur due to a burst pipe, work being carried out on pipes nearby, or through an increase in demand such as when the fire service connect to our mains or someone illegally uses a hydrant."
