Water firms forced to cut bills by £50 by 2025

Water firms in England and Wales will have to cut the average bill by £50 over the next five years, under plans published by the industry regulator.

The regulator also wants water firms to cut water lost to leaks by 16%. Oftwat chief executive Rachel Fletcher said it was "Firing the starting gun on the transformation of the industry".

Building work will include a new reservoir in Hampshire and the construction of a pipeline connecting water supplies from North Lincolnshire to Essex, said the regulator.
