The UK is currently in the middle of it's hottest ever summer, with heatwaves becoming a regular occurrence. In July the UK's hottest ever temperature of 40.3°C was recorded in Coningsby, Lincolnshire. With temperatures being so high, the UK's first ever 'red extreme heat warning' was issued, this meant that there was a risk to life and daily routines would need to change.
Because of the extreme weather, there has been an alarmingly low amount of rainfall throughout the whole of the UK. As a result hosepipe bans are being issued in some areas. But what exactly does a hosepipe ban mean?
What Is A Hosepipe Ban?
During a water shortage, hosepipe bans are put in place to limit the amount of water that households use. Hosepipe bans are implemented when water companies deem their area to be in a drought. These bans will not allow you to do things you usually would be able to do, like wash your car or water your plants for example, and if you decide to anyway you could be fined up to £1000!

Who Will Be Affected?
The most affected areas of the UK are those down south.
Thames water has announced plans to introduce a hosepipe ban in the coming weeks, they have not announced an exact date yet. This will affect up to 15 million people in parts of Gloucestershire, Kent and Essex.
Southern Water already has an ongoing hosepipe ban that started last Friday, affecting the areas of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
South East Water's hosepipe ban will begin on the 12th August, affecting the areas of Kent and Sussex.
