Heat Health Warning 2017

For the majority of people it is about common sense – staying cool, drinking plenty of water to maintain hydration, and avoiding sunburn. However, some groups can be particularly vulnerable and at much greater risk of harm, especially those with underlying heart and lung conditions, older people, babies and young children.

Looking out for people in these groups is important while most of England swelters under high temperatures.

Temperatures today were expected to top 30oC in many places – which is above the point at which hot weather can impact the public’s health.
