The drought is continuing to bite across the midlands, south and east, despite heavy rainfall in many areas over the last few days, writes Declan O’Brien.

Cereal crops remain under severe pressure along the east coast and into the midlands, although growers report a marked improvement in areas that got sizeable falls of rain.
