Last week, temperatures of over 40 degrees were recorded in several European countries. It doesn’t look like the high temperatures will abate anytime soon.

Sicily in Italy recorded the highest temperature on Tuesday at 46.3 degrees.

Spain is one of the countries hardest hit by the heat wave. Many choose to seek shelter and shade to avoid the hottest hours of the day.

British tourist Mark Warren (42 years old) noticed this. He claims that most people stay in their homes in the port of Cartagena.

On Wednesday, 41 degrees was reported in the city, which is what Warren fears.

Sky News also spoke to tourists and residents in Italy. Catriona MacLeod, 37, says she has to shower three times a day to cope with the sweltering heat in the south of the country.
