The Foreign Office has confirmed it received a letter this week complaining about the picture of Kim Jong-Un which was displayed in M&M hair Academy's window in South Ealing.

The advert said: "Bad Hair Day? 15% off all gent cuts through the month of April."

Staff at the west London salon were confronted by two men claiming to be North Korean officials over the marketing stunt earlier this month.

Those most at risk areas include more deprived districts of London such as Hackney and Tower Hamlets, with the odds of dying more than doubling on very hot days.
