Temperatures in York are forecasted to heat up this weekend, amid the first national heatwave warning of the year.

The UK Health Security Agency and Met Office have issued the year's first heat health alert from 9am on Friday, June 9, until Monday morning.

Six regions of England are expected to be hotter than Marbella, Ibiza, and Tenerife.

Cloud, rain, and thunderstorms are also expected to sweep in, with the nights becoming humid with a "warm plume of air", according to the Met Office.
