The UK has enjoyed a heatwave this week with temperatures nudging 30C in many regions.

On Friday, London, Brighton and Southampton could bask in highs of 24C, while Essex, Leeds and Doncaster see highs of 22C.
A day later the south-east could see more hot days, with London and Essex potentially 24C once again.
Further north, Leeds, Bristol and Birmingham could see highs of 21C.
And on Sunday, Essex and London could see 24C again, while Hertfordshire, Kent, and Sussex see 22C.
Brian Gaze, a forecaster at Netweather, predicted warmer air to hit the south over the weekend.
He added there may still be brief spells of rain and unsettled conditions further north.
He said: “The rather unsettled theme continues on Friday with the heaviest showers probably affecting northern and eastern England.
“In the north west temperatures are likely to be close to the September average, but elsewhere it remains quite warm in the south east.
“Saturday is expected to bring a good deal of dry weather.
“There will still be showery rain in places, particularly in the north and east.
“Temperatures close to the average in the north, but it could still be quite warm in the south.

“At the moment Sunday is looking mainly dry in the north, but there is a chance of rain in the south. Overcast skies could lead to rather cool conditions.”
The BBC’s long-range forecast between Wednesday, September 8, and Sunday, September 12, predicted drier conditions over the weekend following the storms conditions mid-week.
The forecast said: “A wetter end to the week is in store for most of the UK eventually, with some thunderstorms and heavy showers moving through to close out the working week.
“Temperatures will quickly moderate from a very warm midweek, dropping to nearer the seasonal norm by the weekend.
“Hurricane Larry, meanwhile, should help build a ridge of high pressure that will push in from the west over the weekend, sending lows into Scandinavia.
“This will bring some drier but cooler weather for much of the UK, but a chance of rain remains for the south and east of England.”
The Met Office also expected the rest of September to see mixed conditions of storms and also “above average temperatures”/
The monthly forecast said: “Confidence is typically low.
“The most likely scenario is that conditions remain more unsettled overall from mid-to late September, beyond which a trend to more settled conditions is probable, especially across the south.
“Within the unsettled period there is a very low risk of very disturbed, perhaps stormy conditions.
“Rainfall expected to be above average, although may trend to near or drier than average late into September and into early October.
“Temperatures likely to remain above average throughout.”
