European forecasters at Meteoalarm have issued a plea to tourists to “remain vigilant” and take precautionary action before going out in the heat.

Tourists have been urged to avoid taking long journeys where possible and listen to advice issued by health authorities in specific destinations.

Experts have advised Brits to drink plenty of fluids and stay in the shade during the heatwave which expected to last until Wednesday.

A spokeswoman for The Weather Company told The Sun: “Temperatures are expected to be around three to five degrees above normal for the time of year for eastern Spain this week, reaching around 35/36C for the Balearic Islands.”

Temperatures in London are set to hit highs of 22C on Friday but drop slightly to 20C on Saturday and Sunday.
