The risk of water scarcity has increased in the east of Scotland, with more dry weather forecast for July.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) has issued a warning that conditions are unlikely to improve in the next week.

Despite rainfall in recent days, the situation has deteriorated throughout June and into July, with very little rainfall forecast for the next week.

The majority of the east of Scotland remains in the "alert" category.
