Burst pipe creates giant fountain

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 ruptured, 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.
