UK to declare first ever level 4 national emergency due to insanely hot heatwave…

The UK is set to declare its first ever Level 4 national emergency over a heatwave as temperatures could soar past 40C next week.

The top alert level warns fit and healthy people could fall ill and even die due to the extreme heat.

It is only meant to be declared when a heatwave is “so severe” or “prolonged” that its impacts extend beyond the health sector – which is currently under pressure due to soaring temperatures.

The UK Health and Security Agency (UKHSA) has never before declared a heatwave national emergency since launching its response plan two decades ago.
