Met Office warns Brits face hottest night's sleep EVER this week as heatwave strikes

THE UK is set to suffer a scorching 25C night-time temperature this week — the hottest in history.

A tortured night of sweating rather than sleeping will be the reality for many Brits on Tuesday night thanks to a blast of heat from Africa.

Sophie Yeomans, of the Met Office, warned: “Hot air has moved up from North Africa and the Mediterranean into the UK.

“Temperatures are expected to reach 25C on Tuesday night meaning it could be the hottest since records began in 1914.”

Relief could come with thunderstorms forecast on Thursday, she added.
