A yellow alert warning has been issued for most of England, with temperatures set to reach 31°C in some areas, Kazinform News Agency reports.

Yellow alert issued during periods of heat which would mainly impact people who are vulnerable.

The warning, issued jointly by the UK Health Security Agency and the Met Office, will be in effect from Monday to Thursday.
