The Met Office is warning of an imminent heatwave as temperatures have remained high enough on two consecutive days to raise concerns about the elderly and vulnerable.

Public Health England is advising people to keep out of the sun between 11am and 3pm, wear loose-fitting clothes, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen with a high protection factor. They’re also encouraging everyone to keep hydrated by sipping lots of cool drinks.

A spokesperson said: “Look out for others, especially older people, babies and the unwell.

“Never leave anyone in a closed parked vehicle, especially infants, young children and animals.”
