Health warning ahead of London's heatwave

Public Health England has warned this week's heatwave in the South East could have a "significant effect on health".

The Met Office has declared a level 2 heat-health alert. It's activated when there is at least a 60% chance of temperatures being high enough on at least two consecutive days and into the night to have a impact on health.
