A hosepipe ban is being brought in today by water companies in the South including Southern Water, South East Water, Veolia South East and Thames Water. The ban is being introduced because of a drought, and low water levels in reservoirs and aquifers.
Anyone who ignores the ban faces a fine of up to £1,000.
