Health experts call for action on climate emergency as parts of country brace for record temperatures
As parts of the UK get set for potentially record-breaking temperatures, a leading health expert has warned it would become highly dangerous to be outdoors during heatwaves if nothing were done to curtail the climate emergency.
Forecasters have said Friday could be the hottest day of the year in some parts of the country, with temperatures predicted to rise as high as 38C (100F) in some places. This was expected to give way to thunderstorms early next week.
