It comes as the Met Office has extended its Amber Extreme heat warning as temperatures are set to soar later this week and early next week.

Temperatures could hit 35C next week with the Met Office extending its amber warning for extreme heat.

A warning of ‘exceptionally high temperatures’ across the region was in place on Sunday but has now been extended to Monday.

The Met Office said: ‘The Amber warning, which has been issued for Sunday (July 17) and Monday (July 18), highlights likely adverse health effects for the public, not just limited to those most vulnerable to extreme heat.

‘Temperatures could be in excess of 35C in the southeast, and more widely around 32C within the warning area.

‘These high temperatures could extend further into next week and an extension of the warning will be considered.’
