As you’ll all be aware, much of the UK is experiencing hotter than usual summer weather

We hope that you’re finding time to enjoy the sun while staying safe. 

In some parts of the country, a heat-health alert has been issued by the UK Health Security Agency, highlighting health risks if it stays too hot for a long period of time. These alerts are in place until at least Sunday 17 July, although higher than usual temperatures are forecast to last for some time. In our regions, there are particular warnings around Yorkshire and Teesside. You can find out more information here. 

Please stay safe and watch out for signs of heat-related illness in yourself and in others. Click here for advice and guidance on spotting the signs.
