'No reason to be alarmed' over drought, says environment sec

Environment Secretary George Eustice has sought to reassure the public after a drought was declared in southwestern, southern, eastern, and central parts of England. He said: "There's no reason for people to be alarmed at all in that our water supply remains resilient … what we're doing at the moment really is taking some steps to try to be cautious about the way we use water resources just in case get a dry winter as well.".
