Water users in the South West had the first good news they've had in many years today. Their bills are actually going down for a change. While consumers nationally face an average increase of 3.5%, South West Water bills are going down by just over 7%.

Adrian Sanders MP (Lib Dem, Torbay) says that although the South West's bills are coming down closer to the national average, water bills generally should not need to be increased above inflation. He has been talking to our Political Correspondent Bob Constantine in London.
