March's rainfall was about 69% below the seasonal average for the month over the past 10 years.

However, the total for the previous year was 2.5% above average.

Guernsey Water said, with 4,400 megalitres in storage it puts the island in a good position ahead of the summer.

During the month of March, the company supplied 396 megalitres of water - about 2% more than the March average.
