Drought announced across large parts of England

By Kira Gibson

The UK has been dealing with numerous heatwaves and as a result of this, large parts of England have now been classed as in a drought.

However, this is not surprising to most people, as parks, gardens and fields have been left brown and unwatered due to the lack of rain. 

England is now entering its second heat wave with peaks of 33C due to hit on Sunday. 

The Met Office has now declared a yellow warning on thunderstorms due to hit Monday 15 August but so far, no forecast thunderstorms over the last month have arrived. 

Due to the drought and potential hosepipe ban, it is recommended that showers are shorter, and that people conserve more water so reservoirs last longer.
