Normal plastic water bottle restrictions eased at Manuka Oval today

The ACT Ambulance Service reminds spectators going to the Prime Minister's XI cricket match today that usual bottle restrictions have been relaxed by the venue because of the extreme heat.

Usually only sealed bottles up to 600mls are permitted but for today's event patrons can take in any sized plastic bottle as long as it's full and sealed or any sized plastic water bottle that is empty which can be refilled at hydration/water stations at the ground.

ACT Health also reminds the community that soft drinks and alcohol are dehydrating and should be used in moderation during extreme heat conditions.
