Hosepipe ban

It is expected that Anglian Water will lift the hosepipe ban, which has been in place since April.

The ban was first put in to deal with drought because after two dry winters groundwater supplies and river levels were low. However, following the restrictions there has been record rainfall across the UK.

Last week, in a drought briefing, the Environment Agency said the wet weather had significantly reduced the risk of drought and further restrictions for the summer.
