North West England has experienced its driest start to the year in 80 years.
Rainfall in May was 38 percent of the region's long-term average, with June following a similar theme.
Despite traditionally being one of the wettest areas of the country, the North West's lack of groundwater supplies, is making it vulnerable to water shortages when river levels drop.
The Environment Agency, says there's currently little threat to supplies across the rest of England and Wales.
However,it warns that water resources across the UK are under pressure from climate change and population growth.
It says that by 2050 many rivers could see a 50% to 80% drop in flows during summer months.
