UK declares national emergency over ‘exceptional’ temperatures

Britain’s Meteorological Office weather forecaster has declared a national emergency, issuing a red “extreme heat” warning for parts of England for Monday and Tuesday next week when temperatures could reach record highs.

“Exceptional, perhaps record-breaking, temperatures are likely on Monday, then again on Tuesday,” the Met Office said on its website on Friday.

“Nights are also likely to be exceptionally warm for the UK, especially in urban areas. This is likely to lead to widespread impacts on people and infrastructure.”

The highest ever recorded temperature in Britain was 38.7C recorded in Cambridge University Botanic Garden on July 25, 2019.
