    Could be either the water pump or alternator. I probably wouldn't take the risk but its up to you

    My money is on water pump ceased and the burning smell is the friction of the belt against stationary pulley. Your lucky it hasn't snapped if so. Wouldn't drive until you are sure what it is tbh

    Must be the water pump cos the missus said when she stopped the car the fan was on full bore and when she popped the bonnet there was sparks coming from metal part of pipes behind radiator..
    Will a water pump come with timing belt kit or is it just the bearing??

    The water pump will be extra.

    Timing belt kit is just the belt, roller and tensioner.
