Cadbury's and Jaguar shut plants after water pipes burst

Jaguar Land Rover and Cadbury's-owner Mondelez have both shut down plants in the Midlands due to water shortages caused by burst pipes in the region.

Mondelez said there is no water supply to its manufacturing site in Bournville but said: "Our supply of chocolate is not immediately impacted." The water supplier said it had seen nearly a 4,000% increase in reports of burst pipes.
