There are, on average, some 2,000 heat-related deaths every year in England. So staying cool this summer is vital for your health.
The Met Office says: “If hot weather hits this summer, make sure it does not harm you or anyone you know. The heat can affect anyone, but some people are at greater risk from it.
“For some people – especially older people and those with underlying health conditions, as well as those who can’t adapt their behaviour to keep cool or who are exposed to high levels of heat because of where they live or work – the summer heat can bring real health risks.
“As our climate changes, hot spells are expected to be more frequent and more intense.”
