17th July - Today's News: Heatwave Continues

Met Office increases health alert level as UK hot weather continues, but there are no plans to impose a hosepipe ban - fortunately we had a wet winter which replenished reservoir and groundwater supplies, so despite the heat and lack of recent rain (just 0.5mm this month in Evesham) we're in a much better position than we were in 2011.

Oh, and by the way, the highest temp this year - so far - is now reported by the MetO as 31.5c in Somerset on Saturday.   Not 31.9c as reported by the Daily Mail (which ironically includes a screenshot of the MetO website showing the latest temp data!) - lots of pictures of scantily glad girls there though......
