Drought officially declared in parts of England during UK heatwave – BBC News

A drought has been declared in many parts of England following the driest July in the country since 1935.

It means water companies can begin announcing stricter measures to conserve supplies.

A four-day extreme heat amber warning is in place for parts of England and Wales, with temperatures forecast to hit 37C (99F), and the Met Office is warning there is an “exceptional” risk of fires spreading over the weekend.
