The Met Office has issued a ‘Level 3 Amber Extreme Heat Warning’ for all of the South West, with temperatures expected to peak with highs of 30C on Thursday.
Most of us welcome the arrival of summer, with the chance to get outside and enjoy the sunny weather. But when it's too hot for too long, there are health risks.
In England, there are on average 2,000 heat related deaths every year and this year the risks may be amplified by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
DCC have put together a special bulletin to share top tips for staying safe in the summer sunshine and urge you to look out for those in our communities who may struggle to keep themselves cool and hydrated.
