French heatwave set to bring unusual heat to UK with highs of 36C

August is set to be another scorcher of a month for Britain as highs of 36C are set to hit parts of the country.

Despite July being an unprecedented month in British weather with a high of 40.3C being recorded on July 19 in Lincolnshire, the scorching sun is set for a return in mid-August.

According to Netweather, a major heatwave in France will brace England for "unusual" hot weather.
