Office Worker in England Demonstrates Creative Way to Beat Heat

An office worker in Derbyshire, England, shared his creative method of cooling down while working, as a record-breaking heat wave swept across the UK.

A TikTok video posted by @CommsCreatives, a social media marketing agency, shows an office worker in business attire as he briskly “commutes” to a makeshift office in an inflatable pool in his yard, his laptop balanced on a sponge floatie.

The Met Office issued what it said was its first-ever red extreme-heat warning in much of England for Monday, July 18, and Tuesday, July 19. Temperatures of 40.2 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) broke records on Tuesday. Credit: @CommsCreatives via Storyful
