The lack of rain is being aggravated by successive heat waves, Borne continued, which on the one hand increase evaporation, but also the demand for water, dpa news agency reported.

The situation could continue over the next two weeks and even become more worrying, she added.

In France, large parts of the mainland are now suffering from drought.

Depending on the severity, different restrictions on water apply, including on irrigation.

According to local media, some municipalities were temporarily without water supply.

Borne called on the population to use water sparingly.
