Image of the Day: England Drought Sparks Warning
The severe drought suffered in most of England is sparking widespread fears of disaster to farming and wildlife. "A longer term drought, lasting until Christmas and perhaps beyond, now looks more likely, and we are working with businesses, farmers and water companies to plan ahead to meet the challenges of a continued drought," said Trevor Bishop, head of water resources at the Environment Agency. The drought is so extensive that other parts of England could impose restrictions on water for homes and businesses that already exist in some parts of the country.
