In England, the health service has issued a heat advisory.

Following a month of record-breaking heat, English health officials issued a heat-health alert for England on Monday in anticipation of temperatures climbing beyond 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) this week.\

The notice, which is intended to assist healthcare workers in dealing with periods of excessive heat that may impact the public, will be in effect from midday on Tuesday to 1800 local time (1700 GMT) on Saturday, according to the UK Health Security Agency.

The warning came after Britain had its highest-ever July temperature of just above 40 degrees Celsius, sparking flames that damaged homes and resulted in the busiest week for London’s fire department since World War II.Temperatures are expected to increase into the low-to-mid 30s C in the next days, well below the month’s highs. However, many parts of England and Wales are still forecast to experience a heatwave, according to the Met Office.
