Burst pipe creates giant fountain in Australia

Take a look at this, water shooting high into the air after the pipe burst.

A burst pipe created a giant fountain which sprayed water 80 metres into the air in Melbourne, Australia.

It is thought a faulty air valve broke, releasing two million litres (500,000 gallons) of water.

It took the water company an hour to stop the flow but the water had already caused quite a lot of damage.

See the amazing pictures of the fountain of water rising above the city.
