The Met Office also issued a Yellow warning effective until August 17 as the heatwave presented a continued risk for strong thunderstorms. It was the first time in records dating back to 1961 that temperatures of 34 C (93 F) and above had been recorded for six consecutive days, the Met Office said. Credit: Antonio Di Natale via Storyful
