The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning to the county, with a risk of possibly severe thunderstorms and torrential downpours hitting parts of Kent.

Despite the warning, it should stay hot and humid, with highs of 31C and 30C on Monday and Tuesday respectively.

Kent County Council (KCC) have kept their heat-health watch at Level-3 until 9pm on Tuesday, August 11.

They have also reminded people that the high temperatures will feel excessively hot for many people due to the unusual longevity, and that coastal areas are likely to offer some respite from the heat.
