Drought in Lincolnshire Photo: Calendar News

A hosepipe ban is coming into force in Lincolnshire today. The region is in drought after the driest 18 months in more than a century. It is the first time in more than 20 years that Anglian Water has imposed a hosepipe ban.

Water saving tips:

  • Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth
  • Have a shower instead of a bath
  • Wait until you have a full load before using the washing machine
  • Wash vegetables in a bowl, not under a running tap
  • Fix dripping taps
  • Get a water butt for the garden
  • Keep a jug of water in the fridge so you don't have to run the tap to get a cold drink
