Thames Water announced today that it expects to be able to lift the hosepipe ban sooner than expected.
The utility company said that customers' strong response to the drought combined downpours in April and May easing concerns about groundwater had reduced the strain on resources.
It added that unless there was a very hot summer it may not need to keep the ban in place through to the autumn.
