Hosepipe bans are spreading across the country

Tory water minister Richard Benyon has denied newspaper claims he flouted the hosepipe ban by leaving water running in his garden.

The MP said there was “no way” a 15ft hose was left running at the family estate in his constituency of Newbury in Berkshire.

The claims were made in The People, but the newspaper said it stood by the story.

Mr Benyon, a minister at the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), said: “Neither I, nor my family, nor anyone who works for me turned that hose on.”
