Damaged hydrant creates water fountain in Salford

Vandals have damaged water hydrants across the North West, United Utilities have said.

Footage shows youngsters at a water hydrant in Salford that had been tampered with, creating a fountain of water.

Seven hydrants were targeted around Greater Manchester within a 24-hour period - including Belle Vue, Salford and West Gorton.

Water supplies have also been affected on Merseyside following incidents in Everton, St Helens and Huyton.
