Reservoir levels in Kent have 'returned to healthy levels', say the Southern Water firm.

The company, which also supplies Sussex and Hampshire, said aquifers and reservoir levels had been replenished by the very wet weather.
But, it added, more rain was needed to fully recover from the recent drought.
A spokesman said: "Now we're in the recharge season and have some rain, the early signs are encouraging."
Southern Water, South East Water, Sutton and East Surrey Water, and Veolia Water Southeast imposed restrictions on water use in April following two dry winters.
All the companies lifted hosepipe bans in June and July after "abnormally heavy rainfall".
