July 19, 2022

Western Europe faces more sweltering temperatures today as a ferocious heatwave heads north.

In France and the UK extreme heat warnings were issued.

Deadly wildfires in France, Portugal, Spain and Greece have forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes.

The UK is expected to see its hottest day on record and experts say parts of France face a "heat apocalypse".

Two people were killed by forest fires in Spain's north-western Zamora region and trains in the area were halted because of fire near the tracks.
