A flash mob has gathered on the Harbourside in Bristol to try and get people to drink more tap water rather than bottled water.
It was organised by 'Refill Bristol' which is a city-wide campaign to promote drinking water, supplied from local reservoirs and provided free by local businesses, cafes, bars and restaurants direct from the tap.
The campaign has come about as part of Bristol's City To Sea initiative which has brought together local environmental experts, marine campaigners and the public who are keen for Bristol as European Green Capital to take action on the marine litter problem, which is receiving increasing coverage nationally and internationally.
Swindon Borough Council has said it plans to return a £10,000 order of flowers and plants following the hosepipe ban.
The authority says its spring planting scheme is unlikely to go ahead because it will be unable to maintain the plants without water.
Thousands of people who live in east Wiltshire, Swindon and parts of Gloucestershire and Dorset will be affected by the hosepipe ban. But the ban doesn't affect Bristol Water and Wessex Water customers. The map below show the area where a hosepipe ban is being enforced:
The council's new Splashpark at Coate Water which can't be filled because of the hosepipe ban.
Richard Fisher, head of Swindon Borough Council's StreetSmart department says the town's parks and flower beds cannot be watered. The council will also have to postpone the opening of its new splash park at Coate Water country park.
The pool is just about to be finished but the hosepipe ban stops it being filled.
Lewis Fox, manager of the Swindon Garden Centre said the hosepipe ban wasn't great news. But he added gardeners can keep beds moist by mulching, using a micro-irrigation system or even using bath water in the garden.
Water companies across England and Wales leaked more than 3.3 billion litres of water a day in 2010/11, according to Ofwat, the economic regulator of the water and sewerage industry.
The Environment Agency has urged companies to do more to tackle leakage rates.
Anglican and Southern were among the companies to fail to meet their water leakage targets last year.
