Hosepipe BAN: Southern Water takes drastic measure after record temperatures 'Please help'

“We’re asking everyone in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to do their bit by supporting these measures and only use the water that they need.”

The Met Office said this week that January to June this year was the driest period in England since 1976.

The National Drought Group met on Tuesday to discuss a strategy to deal with exceptionally dry conditions across the whole of England.

This meeting was planned to take place in October but the potential drought conditions forced an earlier meeting.

An Environment Agency spokesman said: “Southern Water’s announcement of a temporary-use ban for its customers in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight is one of many measures they and other water companies should consider to reduce unnecessary use of water and protect customer supplies and the environment.”
