South East England Hosepipe Ban Hits Hard

World aid agency Water Aid have launched an urgent crisis appeal to ease the hosepipe ban currently being enforced in the south east of England.

Water rich countries such as Ethiopia and the Sudan are sending people with buckets of water to water gardens throughout the home counties.

Muhammed Abdul Jafar from Khartoum said "My wife and 8 children have walked over 3000 miles to bring water to the parched gardens of the south east of England. The sight of withering chrysanthemum and pansies was too much to bear, we just had to do something."

Water Aid are running adverts across the third world urging people for help.

A spokesperson said "The world must mobilise now. Patios are going unscrubbed, swimming pools left unfilled, people with 4x4's are unable to jet-wash their cars after a days off-roading. It's heartbreaking."

People are being urged to do what that can to help maintain England's green and pleasant land.
