UK Weather – Brits flock to beaches and parks to soak up sun on 27C sizzler | The Sun

BRITS are today flocking to beaches and parks up and down the UK to bask in scorching hot sunshine.

Huge crowds of sun worshippers have travelled to the coasts to cool off while the balmy heatwave sweeps across Britain.

The mercury is set to rise to a scorching 27C later today in the Southeast, according to the Met Office.

Forecaster Alex Deakin this morning said today will be a “fine sunny day” for almost all of the country.

He says temperatures will remain “pleasantly warm” and tonight will be cooler than we have seen earlier in the week.

It comes as the Met Office yesterday issued a red "danger to life" weather warning ahead of a three-day scorcher starting tomorrow.

Its forecasters expect temperatures to climb to the mid-30s across much of England over the coming days.

Brits were cautioned over an "exceptional hot spell on Monday and Tuesday leading to widespread impacts on people and infrastructure".

The Met Office issued its red warning this morning, declaring the heat blast could spark "population-wide adverse health effects" adding it could lead to "serious illness or danger to life".

It also suggested people would need to work from home, insisting "substantial changes in working practices and daily routines will be required".

Later today ministers will hold an emergency Cobra meeting to discuss the issue.

Cabinet Office minister Kit Malthouse is to chair a meeting of the Government's Cobra civil contingencies committee to discuss the escalating heatwave, a Government spokesman said.

The UK Health Security Agency has increased its heat health warning from level three to level four – a "national emergency".

Level four is reached "when a heatwave is so severe and/or prolonged that its effects extend outside the health and social care system… At this level, illness and death may occur among the fit and healthy, and not just in high-risk groups," it said.

The Met Office red warning, for Monday and Tuesday, covers an area from London up to Manchester, and up to the Vale of York.

Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said: "If people have vulnerable relatives or neighbours, now is the time to make sure they're putting suitable measures in place to be able to cope with the heat because if the forecast is as we think it will be in the red warning area, then people's lives are at risk.

"This is a very serious situation."

It comes as the mercury soared to a whopping 32C on Monday in Northolt, West London, the Met Office revealed.
