Enjoy the sun safely

Whilst many of us like to enjoy the sun and hot weather, we should make sure we do it safely and remember certain groups of people are more vulnerable than others to the effects of heat or ultraviolet radiation.

Extreme heat can force the body into overdrive as it tries to stay cool through perspiration and evaporation. Young children and older people are particularly at risk. Over exposure to sun is equally dangerous, with effects ranging from mild sunburn to skin cancer. It doesn't have to be hot for the UV index to be high.

Each year a Heat-Health Watch system operates in England run in association with the Department of Health.http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/heat-health/#?tab=heatHealth
