A drought has been declared across large parts of England, covering parts of the South West, parts of southern and central England, and the east of England.

Each water company has their own drought plan, which will likely involve a hosepipe ban and could lead to more extreme measures like banning non-essential water use.

Whilst Wiltshire hasn’t been included in the first areas to be declared as having a drought, with the extreme weather warning in place we can all play our part by using water wisely at home.

We will update if further measures are taken.
