A health warning has been issued for extreme heat across the Channel Islands.
With temperatures set to soar to highs of 31 degrees later this week, Public Health in Jersey and Guernsey is reminding everyone to take sensible steps to protect themselves from exhaustion, heatstroke and dehydration.
Older people, children and those with serious medical conditions are particularly at risk, although it can affect those of any age.
Top tips for coping with the high temperatures include:
Shut windows and pull down any shades, blinds or curtains to keep rooms as cool as possible.
Stay out of the sun for long periods and avoid the hottest part of the day, usually between 11am and 3pm.
Wear sunscreen and hats when outside and walk in the shade.
Have cool baths or showers.
Drink and carry plenty of water. Avoid tea, coffee and alcohol.
Wear loose, cool clothing.
Never leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle - especially infants, young children and animals.
Take care to protect against the sun if going in the water to cool down.
The hottest temperature recorded in Jersey during June is 33 degrees and the island's Public Health team say this spell of very warm weather has the potential to be record-breaking.
Anyone who has wellbeing concerns for themselves or someone else is being asked to seek medical advice.
Jersey's Deputy Director of Public Health Grace Norman said: “I urge islanders to stay out of the sun during the hottest part of the day and to check up on friends, relatives and neighbours who may be less able to look after themselves."
Guernsey's Director of Public Health Dr Nicola Brink said: "We know that over-65s, as well as young children and those with heart and lung conditions can all find normal activities a strain when temperatures get this high. I also urge people to take care to protect against the sun, taking sensible precautions."
