The Met Office say temperatures are set to soar over the next few days and are warning people not to be caught out.

London is at level 2 of the heat-health watch scale which means the probability of heatwave conditions between 1200 on Sunday and 0900 on Tuesday is 60%.

The high temperatures could prove dangerous for the very young, older people and the sick.

The advice for coping in high temperatures is to drink more fluids and use sun cream/cover up.

If you start to feel unwell seek medical advice as soon as possible or it could develop into heatstroke which can cause serious health problems.
