Heatwave warning for the South East

The South East is bracing itself for the hottest day of the year tomorrow. Forecasters say temperatures will soar to 31 degrees Celsius.

That is nearly 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The Met Office has issued a Heat Health Alert, warning people to take extra care of themselves.

The heatwave is great news for the tourist trade and for the Kent County Show which started today. Hotels and guest houses are also reporting record last-minute bookings. But the sunshine can also bring danger. Malcolm Shaw reports.
