Britons are expected to enjoy the highest temperatures of the year this weekend, but have been urged to keep safe as the heat arrives.

Forecasters have predicted highs up to 29 degrees in London and the south-east of London on Sunday, though emergency services are expecting accidents due to the hot weather, reports Sky News.

Speaking to the news provider, Pip Hare, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution's (RNLI) coastal safety manager, said: “With the school holidays about to start and the weather set to get better, it's likely people will want to make the most of it and head to the beach.

"The RNLI's advice is to choose a lifeguarded beach and swim between the red and yellow flags, which is the area most closely monitored by the lifeguards.”

Ms Hare emphasised that people using beaches should check the weather and tide times, while ensuring they take note of safety signs at the beaches.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801608604-ADNFCR
