Anglian Water, which provides over four million customers with drinking water, also advised against paddling pools and car washes.

Sarah Castelvecchi, the company’s Water Saving Manager, said: β€œWe want everyone to enjoy the fabulous sunshine and being outdoors, however we would like to ask everyone to think about how they are using their water.

“Paddling pools are the go-to cooler, but a standard pool can use up to 400 litres of water – that’s four full water butts. It would be great if people could reuse the water on their gardens, instead of from the tap, as their plants will be hot too!”

She added: β€œWe’re asking people to use the water they need to stay hydrated and healthy; we want everyone to use water wisely and reuse wherever possible to help us keep taps running this summer.

This comes as the Met Office issued a rare amber warning for extreme heat expected on Saturday and Sunday as temperatures are expected to hit 36C.
