Watch “UK heatwave of summer 1976”

A short but good video by weatherman Liam Dutton which puts the current June heat into context (which was well forecast by WeatherAction’s Piers Corbyn). Unlike 1976 this heat will be gone before the week is out. The deluge following the drought is always nice to see as it’s something easily forgotten but good to know next time we’re warned of unending droughts, although it might be sensible to build done more reservoirs.
