The wrong type of rain

The rain at the weekend was heavy and United Utlilites needed light rain.

Well I am sure the United Utilites customers will be glad to know they got the wrong type of rain

I doubt the water users will be saying thank you for this not great PR for the water companies.

'Heavy rain runs off the soil, with more of it evaporating in the summer, so we are left relying on the rain falling in the valleys where our reservoirs are.

Met Office forecaster Helen Roberts added: 'After such a long dry spell, heavy bursts of rain do not soak into the soil. Lighter rain is better, as it soaks in more easily.'
