    Default Cambelt Help Urgent!!!

    Right while driving home today i noticed a burning smell (rubber) then while sat at the traffic lights noticed smoke coming from under the bonnet! pulled over and popped the bonnet and the smoke was coming from the cambelt area! and stinks of rubber plus the water level has dropped and a pool of water under the car which makes me think the water pump has failed nown belt is still on!! just dont want to drive it in case it snaps.....
    Now the belt was only done 10.000 miles ago but the pump wasnt changed then it was done at VX at 62.000 (currently done 110.000) so is there anybody local to me thatcan replace belt & pump?
