Germany, France, Poland and the Czech Republic have all recorded their highest-ever June temperatures, and in Spain firefighters are battling Catalonia's worst wildfires in 20 years.

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year, with temperatures reaching 28 degrees.

Met Eireann's forcast for today is  'warm and humid today with good sunshine for Ulster and Leinster. However, it will be cloudier across Munster and Connacht and there is the potential for a few thunderstorms to develop bringing heavy rain and the risk of surface flooding. Top temperatures of 22 to 27 degrees generally but a few degrees cooler in southern coastal areas due to moderate southeasterly breezes.'
