We're talking 45-plus degrees out here.
Animals at various zoos enjoyed icy delights and sorbets to keep cool as a heatwave gripped large swathes of Europe. Zookeepers also sprayed down some of the larger animals and birds in enclosures with cold water. They were also given ice blocks with a mixture of frozen fruit to splash around in the pools and beat the heat.
Temperatures will reach 25 degrees or more for seven days straight.
Heatwaves have been responsible for more human deaths than any other natural hazard, including bushfires, storms and floods.
Temps are set to ratchet up on Wednesday.
Saturday's going to be a scorcher
It's 33 degrees in London. In Darwin that's called winter.
It was a catastrophe.
The more coal we burn, the more heatwaves and bushfires we'll get.
'We have never seen this in NSW.'
