Heatwave continues with north-west set to be hot spot

20 July 2013 Last updated at 14:29 BST

The Met Office has reduced its heatwave warning levels for much of England.

The North West, West Midlands and South West were at level three - when health services should take action to protect elderly, ill and very young people.

But these have been changed to level two - "alert and readiness" - matching all other areas except the North East, which is at the lowest warning level.

Meanwhile, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland had their hottest day of the year on Friday.

Tom Esslemont reports.
