Britain braced for record high temperature

Temperatures could reach an all-time high in Britain on Wednesday as the heatwave tightens its grip, forecasters said.
There is a 30 percent chance Britain would swelter in its hottest-ever day, with warmer weather than the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and southeast Asia, the Met Office said on Tuesday.

The highest temperature ever recorded in Britain was 38.5 Celsius (101.3 Fahrenheit) at Faversham in Kent, on August 10, 2003.
"It is possible that the all-time record could be broken," the Met Office said.
