Heatwave: Fires blaze after UK passes 40C for first time 




July 20, 2022


The UK has recorded temperatures of over 40C (104F) for the first time.


Reports say, thermometers hit 40.3C at Coningsby in Lincolnshire, while 33 other locations went past the UK’s previous highest temperature of 38.7C, set in 2019.


This has caused several fire outbreaks such as in Wennington, in east London, which left homes gutted.


Some rail services were also cancelled after tracks overheated or buckled and overhead cables failed.
