Temperatures soar in Australia

In Australia, a heat wave is sending temperatures soaring into the high 30s and 40s.

It was officially the hottest country in the world yesterday – the top 10 temperatures in the world were all in Australia.

It is a country baking and bathing under a slow moving mass of hot air and it's proving problematic for emergency services.

Today there's been no let-up.

It was already 30degC in Sydney at 9am and temperatures rose to 40degC as the day went on.

Naturally, the beach therefore became the most popular location to be at.
