For the first time, temperatures above 40°C have been measured in the UK

As we wrote earlier, brutal heat hit the UK on Monday, and there is an unprecedented red warning in effect in several regions. Extreme heat threatens human life and damages infrastructure, but it doesn’t spare animals either. At one of Europe’s largest agricultural fairs, the Royal Welsh Fair in Wales, even pigs are protected by sunscreen.

The UK Met Office announced on Tuesday afternoon that the national temperature record had been broken.

For the first time, a temperature above 40 °C was measured.

The value was registered at London Heathrow Airport at 12:50 pm local time on Tuesday. The thermometer temporarily showed 40.2 °C.

The temperature is still very high, so the authorities are warning residents to be careful. Experts believe that extreme weather events such as the current condition will become more frequent and intense.
