It's likely to be hot again today and tomorrow! Stay safe by: staying out of the sun, keeping your home as cool as possible – shading windows and shutting them during the day may help and open them when it is cooler at night. Keep drinking fluids too. If there’s anybody you know, for example an older person living on their own, who might be at special risk, make sure they know what to do.
