The environment minister is urging water companies to introduce a full hose pipe ban amid warnings of an unusually dry August and a second heat wave.

This means possible nationwide restrictions on people watering gardens, washing cars, or filling swimming pools.

George Eustice wrote in the Sunday Telegraph: Under the drought plan, water companies across the country have taken appropriate steps to mitigate the effects of prolonged dry weather, using a variety of tools available.

I urge others to do the same.

Two water companies, South East Water and Southern Water, have already imposed hose pipe bans.

The Southern Waters ban affects 1.5 million people on the Isle of Wight and parts of Hampshire.

There is no indication of how long the hose pipe ban will last, and it was imposed for the first time since 2012.

The measure will also be introduced next week for South East Water customers in Kent and Sussex.

Welsh Water also announced bans on Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire later this month.

The Bureau of Meteorology expects temperatures to reach the mid-30s by the end of next week, with another heatwave warning on the card.

London is expected to be hotter than Portugal on Friday, with mercury expected to hit 34 degrees in the south.

Forecasters are also predicting that much of the south won’t rain until at least mid-September.

Meteorological Department chief forecaster Steve Willington said: “If above-average temperatures persist for more than three days, we could see parts of the UK entering a heat wave condition.”

Many parts of the UK, especially the South, will see temperatures several degrees above average.

By the end of next week the northern cities will also be sunny, with Manchester reaching highs of 29 degrees Celsius.

Pitsford, Northamptonshire, broke both heat records last month.

The town was jointly the hottest in the UK at 38.2C and recorded 40.2C the next day.
