Today is set to become the hottest June day in more than 40 years, prompting a nationwide health warning to be issued for a severe heatwave.

Public Health England (PHE) are advising families to keep an eye on their neighbours during the sweltering conditions and to ensure they are taking in enough water and wearing sun tan lotion if they plan to be out in the sun for long periods.

Yesterday, temperatures peaked at 32 degrees, making the country hotter than Thailand and ensuring the warmest June 18 since records began 167 years ago.

A Met Office spokeswoman said: “We could see 33C on Monday, which we think would be the peak of the heat.

“There’s a small chance of it being even warmer later in the week, but there’s low confidence on that.”
