The Met Office have issued a level 2 heatwave warning due to very high temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday.
The warning is in force from 12pm on Tuesday to 6am on Thursday as temperatures could reach 30C across the region.
The Met Office warning says that ‘temperatures are expected to build on Tuesday 30 June and into Wednesday 01 July, with the hottest day of the year so far expected on successive days this working week’.
There will also be very warm and humid nights to end Tuesday and Wednesday.
Due to the hot temperatures Public Health England have warned people about the dangers of extreme heat.
Graham Bickler said: “There is considerable evidence that heatwaves are dangerous and can kill.
“In the 2003 heatwave, there were 2,000 to 3,000 excess deaths [more than usual] in England. Across Europe, there were around 30,000 excess deaths.”
Dr Paul Cosford, director for health protection at Public Health England (PHE), said:
“Older people and those with long-term illnesses are particularly vulnerable to the effects of very hot weather, so it’s important to look out for them, help them stay hydrated with plenty of cool drinks, and keep indoor areas as cool as possible.
He added: “Try to keep bedroom and living spaces cool, by closing the curtains on windows that receive the sun and open your windows at cooler times of the day and overnight.
