Another week for UK heatwave

LONDON — The heatwave currently hitting many parts of the UK is set to continue for at least another week, forecasters say.

The BBC weather centre said conditions would become more unsettled in northern areas towards the end of July, with the south enjoying warm weather for longer.

On Saturday, the highest temperature in the UK this year, 31.4C, was recorded at Heathrow.

And motorists faced disruption yesterday afternoon when a section of the M25 was closed after the road melted.

It was shut near to junction 23, near Potters Bar in Hertfordshire, on the clockwise carriageway due to severe surface damage.

The Highways Agency said it re-opened at 05:30 BST on Monday after emergency resurfacing.

“It is regrettable that drivers were stuck in traffic on such a hot Sunday afternoon, but the precaution was taken to close the carriageway after a defect across three lanes led to safety concerns,” a spokesperson said.

Today was expected to be another warm and sunny day across much of the UK, with maximum temperatures of 30C, although parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland will see some cloud and patchy rain. (BBC)
