Europe is enduring its worst heatwave in years, where temperatures are hitting record highs in places such as the UK.

Firefighters are trying to contain dozens of blazes across the continent, which according to climate scientists will continue in greater numbers in the coming decades. We take a look at what measures Türkiye is taking as it braces for a heatwave that has already ravaged Europe.
