Agency foresees drought and floods

The Environment Agency was still warning this week of a drought next summer even though heavy rain triggered 20 flood watch warnings last weekend 'Unless we receive higher than average rainfall between now and March we could be faced with water restrictions and serious water shortages in 2004, ' said Environment Agency chief executive Baroness Young.

The Agency said that it would monitor water resources and would know by early in the New Year if, when and where shortages are likely in 2004.
