The U.K. breaks the record for the hottest day ever.

The U.K. broke its record for the hottest day ever on Tuesday as a heat wave continues to scorch Europe. The heat wave that settled over southern Europe last week moved north, bringing boiling temperatures that are breaking records and causing a national emergency in the U.K. The recorded temperature at Heathrow was 104.4 degrees, surpassing the previous record of 101.7° in 2019. The sweltering heat threatens to buckle railway lines and deplete reservoirs. There were disruptions to flights at two airports on Monday after the heat caused "surface defects" on Luton Airport's runway and caused the tarmac at the Royal Air Force's station in Brize Norton to melt.
