Malaga residents were startled to see a new water feature shooting into the sky this Thursday morning (21 October) after a pipe ruptured in the city.

There have been no injuries, but the scene caused quite a commotion, in the El Palo district.

The high-pressure water jet reached the height of the seventh floor of the adjoining building for more than half an hour.

While several Local Police teams coordinated the traffic and prevented the water flooding from the pipe from causing an accident, water board technicians worked to isolate the supply.
