Despite weeks of record rainfall, South East Water which supplies more than two million customers in Kent and Sussex - says its hosepipe ban will stay in force indefinitely.

The company's refusal to follow the example of Southern Water and Thames Water has brought a torrent of complaints from customers. John Ryall's report is followed by an interview in which Fred Dinenage asked Simon Robertson, Head of Distribution at South East Water about the firm's decision to keep its restrictions in place.
