Writes about it Bloomberg.

It is noted that parts of western, southern, central and eastern England were declared dry after the meeting of the National Drought Panel on Friday, August 12.

Britain's driest July since 1935, according to the Met Office.
 
"The current high temperatures we are facing have exacerbated the pressure on wildlife and our aquatic environment," said National Drought Group Chairman Harvey Bradshaw.

Due to the drought, water companies may start announcing stricter conservation measures.

Recall that in Britain, due to abnormal heat for the first time in history, the sources of the River Thames dried up.
