French prime minister Elisabeth Borne has called for the country to adapt to climate change as wildfires rage amid hot temperatures.
More than 1,000 firefighters were called out to a wildfire in Gironde, which has forced 10,000 locals to evacuate the area.
The blaze, which flared up on Tuesday, 9 August, had previously burned in the area in July, ripping through 14,000 hectares (34595 acres).
“We must... continue within the framework of ecological planning...to adapt to this climate change,” Borne said.
