A British military source announced that the Royal Air Force suspended flights at its largest military base in the Kingdom due to the “melting” of its runway following the heat wave that hit Britain and across Europe.
The British Sky News network quoted the (unnamed) source as saying that “the Royal Air Force has suspended flights at Brisbane Norton military base due to the melting of the runway due to the heat wave in Britain.”
On Monday, Britain experienced its hottest day since records began, forcing train companies to cancel some services and prompt health authorities to deploy more ambulances.
Most of Europe is witnessing a severe heat wave, with temperatures reaching about 45 degrees Celsius in some areas, and forest fires have spread to Portugal, Spain and France.
Britain declared a national emergency after forecasts indicated that temperatures on Monday and Tuesday will exceed the 38.7 degrees Celsius recorded in Cambridge University Garden in 2019.
