Serious drought conditions.

As England, Wales and Scotland were battered by wind and rain yesterday and today a weather expert warned that this could be the wettest drought on record.

Many water authorities in the south east of England have imposed hosepipe bans as local water resources have dried up and many have feared a summer of standpipes, not seen since 1976.

But things are likely to get worse according Dr Noggin T Nog, of the Institute of Weather at Hounslow University.

"I'm afraid this rain is bad news for everyone affected by the drought," he said. "We haven't seen a drought this wet since records began.

"We have been working on computer models to try to predict the outcome. It seems that if it keeps raining, as the forecast suggests, well, I'm afraid it's just going to get wetter.

"Given that we have records going back nearly 300 years, it could be some time before we see a drought this wet for many years to come."
