Driest Spring For 101 Years

Just 11.7mm of rain fell in Cambridgeshire between the start of March and the end of May.

The Met Office says East Anglia has experienced its driest Spring for 101 years.

Across the region on average just 15.7mm of rain fell, making it the second driest Spring since 1910, and the driest Spring since 1990.

However, Anglian Water, which supplies water to most of the area, has no plans for a hosepipe ban.

The company's Managing Director said: "This huge effort to deal with the effects of the cold winter has also played a big part in helping us cope with the very dry spring.

Together with careful collection and storage of the water available to us over the winter, it means I can tell customers our water supplies are secure for the year, even if high temperatures continue well into the summer."
