No Hosepipe Ban for Essex – Yet

A hosepipe ban has come into force in parts of the south-east.

The ban was imposed by Thames Water from today and will hit 10 million customers across the Thames Valley and London.
People will not be able to use hosepipes to water gardens, wash cars and windows, or fill paddling pools.
The decision was announced earlier this month after reports of the River Thames reaching its lowest level since 2005.
Those found to have breached the rules could be fined up to £1,000.
But water suppliers in Essex say there are no plans to introduce a hosepipe ban this summer, as reservoirs are at “healthy levels for this time of year”, though there is ‘very high demand’

Also on today’s show – 

Funniest joke at the Edinburgh Fringe this year as voted by the public.

A construction worker got knocked out in a bizarre accident.

Rising energy prices could push UK inflation as high as 18% next year.

Taylor Swift’s songwriting is to be the subject of a new literature course at a Texas university.
