A water company that supplies homes in Kent and Sussex says their reservoirs are now in a healthy position thanks to the recent wet weather.

Bewl reservoir near Lamberhurst is now 91% full according to Southern Water, more than double what it was in February when it was only 41%.

The firm lifted water restrictions last month after heavier than average rainfall in April, May and early June.
