Two water companies have said they will lift their hosepipe bans this week.

Anglian Water and Southern Water were among seven firms to put restrictions on water use in April to combat drought in southern and eastern England.

But the restrictions were followed by record rainfall across England that month and more rain in May and June.

The companies said their hosepipe bans would end on Thursday after an official announcement on Wednesday. Thames Water also signalled it would lift its ban.
