A week-long yellow heat warning has been issued for Norfolk.

The health alert from the Met Office and the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) is in place until 9am on Monday, June 19.

It has been issued across six regions in the country including the East of England.

Norfolk will reach highs of 27C in the coming week, with the UV level and pollen count very high.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “For East Anglia this week we expect to see a reduction in daily temperatures as we go through the week with values reaching mid to low 20Cs by the end of the week.

"There will be a bit of a resurgence in temperature values over the weekend as another plume of warmer air is drawn up from the continent."

It comes after the hottest day of the year so far on Sunday which saw Marham reach 31C.

Last week's heat-health warning was even upgraded to an amber alert.
