Britain's biggest water company is threatening to impose a hosepipe ban despite failing to stop millions of litres of water leaking from its pipes.

Thames Water confessed yesterday to letting nearly a quarter of all water it supplies leak through cracks – but the firm's strategy director said we needed to 'be more efficient' – like the Germans and Danes.

It said it is preparing to impose a hosepipe ban in the 'next couple of weeks', affecting 15million customers in London and the South East.

Environment Secretary George Eustice called in water company bosses yesterday to discuss the water crisis amid reports a state of drought could be declared.

Yorkshire Water confirmed it was also considering bringing in a hosepipe ban. Sources at the Environment Agency confirmed that Yorkshire, Anglian and South West Water are all considering hosepipe bans – which would place water restrictions on more than 32million people in England and Wales.
