“However, high temperatures can be dangerous, especially for people who may be particularly vulnerable, such as older people, young children, and those with serious illnesses.
“Everyone can enjoy the sun safely by keeping out of the heat at the hottest time of the day, avoiding sunburn and staying hydrated with plenty of cool drinks.”
