High temperatures set to continue across Europe

<p>The European heatwave shows no signs of abating as temperatures continue to soar across the continent.</p> <p>The time may be right for dancing in the street as the heat climbs above 30 degrees, but the summer sun is not for everyone.</p> <p>Some are struggling to cope with the unnaturally high temperatures as they seek refuge from the heat.</p> <p>There have also been a number of reported drownings across the continent as revellers flock to the nearest body of water to cool off.</p> <p>Two people were confirmed dead in different drowning incidents in Britain and the body of a third was found in a French river.</p> <p>The World Meteorological Organisation has said that temperature records are being broken across Europe and that only 2016 saw higher global temperatures.</p> <p>For now the only relief from the sun is the shade and plenty of water.</p> <p>And with the heat forecast to continue through the rest of the week, everyone might as well sit back and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.</p>
