VIDEO: The hosepipe ban begins in Louth

WELL we all knew it was coming...Yes you guessed it, the hosepipe ban has begun in Louth.

Residents in the town are no longer permitted to use their hosepipes for watering the garden or washing their cars.

The ban will also continue indefinitely due to the this year’s poor rainfall.

Watch local Louth resident, Ken Addison who’s garden has been a hit amongst the gardening community for several years and who has won a number of prizes in the town’s Lovely Louth competition.

Unfortunately for Ken, his days of using his hosepipe to water his garden are unfortunately (for now anyway) no more.

Yes the normal cooling refreshment of H20 for his garden from his hosepipe has ended and now the hard work of trudging along with his watering can begins.
