Every year we get this. When I was in Toulouse recently, 35 degrees, near the Spanish border, watching our host hosing down the patio I asked if there was any problem with hosepipe bans. "No, not at all" was his answer.

The water companies lose water, because they won't replace the pipes because then the MD would have to go without the his pay increase this year. That's the real problem.

And BTW, when there's a localized drought in the South East, it is NOT national news. It is regional news regardless of how important the BBC tells everyone else it is.

And with another 200,000+ homes on the way, the more you'll all have to share around the water you haven't got. The politicians really don't have a clue.
