A level two heat health alert has been issued for the borough, meaning that the likelihood of a heatwave is 60 per cent and the Met Office recommends to be alert and ready for a heatwave.

Advice during a heatwave includes drinking plenty of fluids and avoiding excess alcohol, dressing appropriately for the weather and slowing down when it’s hot.

It also includes finding somewhere cool, by either going inside or outside, whichever is coolest and avoiding cars as they get hot.

Watch out for heat related illnesses, cool your skin with water and drink water, stay safe when swimming and call 101 or 999 if necessary.

The Met Office recommends looking out for yourself, the very young, very old or those with chronic disease.
