WATER levels in Oxfordshire are fine despite one of the driest Aprils on record.

Thames Water said last night reservoirs in the county are 95 per cent full and levels are normal for the time of year.

But the company urged people not to waste water because the situation could change if there are more prolonged dry spells.

The Met Office said heavy rain is forecast for Oxford on Saturday, with more showers on Sunday.

Last month, rainfall across Britain was only seven per cent of normal levels, making it the fourth driest April since records started.

Thames Water spokesman Simon Evans said: “At the moment the situation is good, but you never know what the weather will bring.

“Reservoirs are currently 95 per full, which we would expect, but if we get another four months of dry weather the situation may be different.”
