Water bills are to be cut in the Anglia region after the regulator Ofwat decided what water companies can charge customers in the next five years.

In the East of England, Anglian Water have been told to cut bills by 10%. That will see the average combined sewerage and water bills of £431 in 2014/15 falling by £41 to £390 in 2019/20.

It's a bigger cut in the prices than Anglian Water had requested.

Affinity Water which supplies water to the Clacton and Harwich area of Essex along with South Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and West Essex will cut bills by 7%.

The average bill for a water supply in those areas will reduce by £13 to £163 by 2019/20.
