DROUGHT looks set to grip parts of Derbyshire unless we get weeks of steady rain – but householders have been reassured they should not face a hosepipe ban this year.

The main reservoirs in Derbyshire are in a healthy state – with Carsington, near Wirksworth, 90 per cent full and Howden, Derwent and Ladybower reservoirs in the north of the county 97 per cent full.
