Heatwave is shot in arm for South's tourist trade

With the heatwave continuing tomorrow - and temperatures set to rise further - health experts say there is a serious side to the sun.

The Met Office has issued a Level Two Heatwave warning.

That means temperatures over the next 48 hours can pose a health risk for some people - especially the elderly and the very young.

But the sunshine is good news for the South's tourist trade.

And there's no doubt it's been a glorious day. As Richard Slee reports.

Drowning warning as heatwave hits South

The Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK), the drowning prevention charity, has issued a warning as temperatures across Britain are set to hit a scorching 35C.

The charity has appealed for people to take note of simple safety messages to avoid a repeat of last summer’s tragedies when many people lost their lives cooling off in unlifeguarded open water, not suitable for swimming.

With temperatures on the rise, it is important people make the most of the weather and enjoy the water but do so safely at sites designated for swimming.

RLSS UK’s Director of Volunteer and Community Education, Mike Dunn, said: “Last year saw a tragic amount of preventable deaths as people flocked to open water sites not suitable for swimming.

"These sites included rivers, quarries, lakes and reservoirs – all of which have many dangers including very cold water, currents, obstacles and uneven depths. They look so inviting but can be deadly.

“Being aware of the basic principles of open water safety, combined with knowledge and understanding of the hazards, can increase enjoyment and significantly reduce the number deaths each year.”

With temperatures reaching 28.1C at Kew Gardens today, it is officially the hottest day of the year so far.

However, with a forecast well into the thirties for much of Britain tomorrow, that record looks set to be broken. Most forecasts are predicting temperatures as high as a blistering 35C, just a few degrees shy of the all-time record, 38.5°C, recorded in Kent town Faversham, in August 2003.

Last Friday was the previous hottest in 2015, when it reached 27.8C in Gravesend in Kent.

ITV Weather Presenter Lucy Verasamy said temperatures are set to rise to 31°C by the end of the day.

Tomorrow is likely to be nearer 35°C. The record July temperature currently stands 36.5°C set in 2006 - this record could well be broken tomorrow. It'll be a close call.
