Red warning for exceptional heat: DVSA services
The Met Office has issued the first ever red warning for exceptional heat for Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 July 2022 for parts of central, northern, eastern and south eastern England.
A Level 4 UK Health Security Agency Heat Health Alert has been issued for Monday and Tuesday.
It is important to keep yourself hydrated and to find shade where possible when UV rays are strongest, between 11am and 3pm.
If you have vulnerable family, friends and neighbours, make sure they are aware of how they can keep themselves protected from the warm weather.
If you are travelling it’s important to be prepared, particularly if you’re making a long journey.
National Highways has advised that before you travel:
-make sure your vehicle is fit for the journey – carry out our recommended vehicle checks.
-check the weather forecast for your route and destination
-take plenty of drinking water with you – enough for you and your passengers
-allow plenty of time for your journey, including regular breaks
-check travel conditions before setting out and, where it’s safe to do so, during the journey
Our services are currently unaffected by the red warning for exceptional heat. Please keep an eye on your emails and our social media channels for any updates.
