The Mirror also refers to the report on its front page as it warns that Thursday could be the UK’s “hottest day ever”. It says the Met Office has predicted temperatures of 101.3F (38.5C), which would smash the all-time high set in August 2003.

The Sun reports on the continuing heatwave in the UK as well, claiming the current temperatures have “sparked a plague of rats”. The paper says councils may step up bin rounds as the rodents are being encouraged by food rubbish, warmed buy weeks of sun, and early ripened fruits.

The Daily Mail says the heat could intensify even further, warning of a “furnace Friday” later this week. The paper says the mercury could hit 37C, before being replaced with thunderstorms and flooding.
