Millions face hosepipe ban as Britain swelters in 'longest heatwave since 1976'

Water customers in England have been advised they'll face hosepipe bans in the coming weeks as temperatures soar.

People in the north west of England have been told to expect the use of hosepipes to be banned in the coming weeks as reservoirs dry up and water resources run low. United Utilities, the organisation responsible for water distribution in the affected area, said that the ban would be in place in parts of Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Lancashire and Cheshire.

A cooler week ahead, but the heat wave is set to return

It was another HOT HOT HOT weekend. If you’re feeling frazzled by the heat there are some cool days in sight, and a chance of scattered showers. Wimbledon players will see a dip in temperatures as the week progresses. But as the finals arrive, so will the 30 degree heat.

Further afield in Russia, there’s a risk of rain but it’s looking clear for the game on Wednesday.

The heat and humidity is set to continue this week

The hot and humid conditions will remain over the coming days, which might lead to thunder storms in some parts today and towards the end of the week.

Wimbledon is expected to escape any downpours, so if you're heading to the All England Club to for the tennis, make sure you pack the sunscreen... not a brolly.
