NI heat wave set to last for week

The heat wave that has been gripping Northern Ireland is set to last for at least another week.

It is the longest spell of warm settled weather in Northern Ireland since July 2006.

The highest temperature, so far, has been 29.9C at Castlederg in Tyrone on Monday 8 July.

That is just below the all-time record high of 30.8C set at Shaws Bridge in Belfast on 12 July 1983.

Barra Best reports.
