Europe heatwave: Many European countries have recorded their highest-ever temperatures.  Europe is experiencing its worst-ever heatwave, with temperature reaching record levels in several countries. Temperatures of more than 40 degrees Celsius (100 degrees Fahrenheit) over the last few days have spelled misery for millions and shattered heat records, focusing attention on the impact of global warming.

Cooler air swept in Wednesday, bringing relief to people from Portugal to Britain, but thousands of firefighters continued to tackle mass fires that have broken out in multiple countries in recent days after months of drought-like conditions.

Firefighters have also been pressed into action in Portugal, Spain and Italy in recent weeks to tackle wild fires. Experts blame climate change for the latest heatwave and note the more frequent extreme weather will only worsen in years to come.
