Heatwave hits France


Temperatures in France are expected to exceed 40C this week as the country swelters in a record-breaking heatwave.

The mercury is due to reach at least 35 degrees today and then climb even higher until peaking on Thursday or Friday.

As the north of France, including Paris, are expected to endure the highest temperatures, temporary foundations have been placed in the capital.

Also, public pools will stay open later than scheduled.

France, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium could all see national records for June broken in the coming days, according to meteorologists.

Meteo France is warning that temperatures might not fall until the following weekend - even at night, when lowest temperatures are expected to remain above 20C in many places.
