IT will soon be safe to water the garden again – should you need to.

The hosepipe ban which has been in place for Anglian Water customers since April 5 is due to be officially lifted tomorrow, Thursday.

The company’s director Paul Valleley said: “Almost from the moment we announced the ban, it started raining and April turned out to be the wettest in our 113-year records.

“There’s no way we could have predicted it but in some places we had three times the average rainfall in April.”

Although confident supplies will last the summer, Anglian Water has asked customers to continue to use water wisely.
