A four-day "extreme heat" warning has been issued by the Met Office for Suffolk as the sweltering temperatures are set to continue.

The warning, which has been put in place for this coming Thursday to Sunday, is due to the possibility of "exceptionally high temperatures" that could have widespread impacts on people and infrastructure.

It comes as a heatwave is expected to hit Suffolk this week with temperatures expected to exceed 30C.

A health warning has been issued by the government for Suffolk and the UK Health Security Agency is advising people to look out for those who may struggle to keep themselves cool and hydrated, including older people, those with underlying conditions and those who live alone.

It comes after the first-ever red weather warning for extreme heat was issued for Suffolk last month and record-breaking temperatures of 38.4C in July.
