WINCHESTER Action on the Climate Crisis said that temperatures over 40 degrees will be much more common over the coming years, as greenhouse gases change our climate.

We will have more disruption, more fires, and more deaths from the heat. But it's not too late to stop fuelling the climate crisis. We need to drive less, eat less meat, insulate our homes - and we must tell our politicians, local and national, that we expect them to take a lead and make funds available to help.
