With the upcoming few days expected to be over 40+ degrees, it is important to take good care of yourselves and your loved ones.

Severe heatwaves can be dangerous for many people, especially older people, babies, children, pregnant and breastfeeding women, people with medical conditions and people who are unwell.

To help you stay cool the following advice may be helpful:
