Met Office issues Level 3 Heat Health Warning for South West

The Met Office issued a Level 3 Heat Health Warning at 09:47 this morning (Wednesday 1 July).

The Amber warning shows a 90% probability of heatwave conditions between 07:00 today and 09:00 tomorrow across most of England.

The Met Office has issued the following advice:

” Stay out of the sun. Keep your home as cool as possible – shading windows and shutting them during the day may help. Open them when it is cooler at night. Keep drinking fluids. 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.”

Advice on how to reduce the risk either for yourself or somebody you know can be obtained from NHS Choices at www.nhs.uk/summerhealth, NHS 111 or from your local chemist.
