Full report into region's drought status

The entire South West has been declared a drought area by the Environment Agency.

In 2010 we had 20% less rainfall than the average. Last year we had 16% less than we'd normally expect.

Water levels have fallen to such a low level that it's taking its toll on agriculture and wildlife.
