The Environment Agency announced today that they have removed the 'drought status' for certain areas in England. Drought status has been lifted for 19 counties in the South West, the Midlands and Yorkshire.
The wettest April on record and continuing rainfall in May have significantly increased river and reservoir levels, reducing the pressure on environment and current public water supplies in some parts of England.
However, parts of East Anglia and South East England remain in drought.
