Severn Trent have restored all water supplies to the area that were affected.

Water has been moved around in a different way to normal, when your water supply is restored it may be discoloured or aerated.  Although unappealing, Severn Trent have no reason to believe there is any risk to your health, howeverthey understand that whilst the supply is discoloured you may choose not to drink the water.

To help thems and yourself in resolving this problem we would advise that you run the first mains fed cold water tap in your house, normally at the kitchen sink, at a gentle rate for up to 20 minutes.  If the supply is not clear then turn off the tap for 20 minutes and then repeat the process, you may need to do this several times before the supply is clear.
