The Met Office has issued a yellow health warning for heatwave conditions from Tuesday until Thursday evening.

The warning means there is an 80% chance of temperatures which could be a risk to health, and is intended to help social and healthcare teams prepare.

Fears that railway tracks could buckle in the heat prompted Network Rail to introduce speed restrictions.

The hot weather is expected to last until the weekend, when temperatures will slowly drop off.

The Met Office said heatwaves can be dangerous for the very young, the elderly or those with chronic disease.

The yellow health warning, covering the west and north-east of England, refers to conditions between 09:00 on Tuesday and 18:00 BST on Thursday.

Hay-fever sufferers will also be impacted as the Met Office forecasted very high levels of pollen across England, Wales and Northern Ireland throughout the week.

Met Office forecaster Mark Foster said: "High pressure is going to dominate this week so we can expect very high levels of pollen and UV."

On Monday the highest temperature of 30.1C (86.2F) was recorded at Hampton waterworks in west London.

The year's previous record temperature had been 29.1C in April at St James's Park in central London.

In Scotland, the highest temperature of 26.7C was recorded in Balmoral, while the same temperature was also reached in Castlederg, Northern Ireland.

Temperatures reached 28.7C in Usk, in south-east Wales.
