“The worst heatwave in recent years happened in August 2003 when record-breaking temperatures led to 2,000 excess deaths in the UK. Northern France bore the brunt of the hot weather that year when three weeks of unprecedentedly high temperatures resulted in 15,000 excess deaths. By the 2080s, it is predicted that an event similar to that experienced in England in 2003 will happen every year.” http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/10567678.stm
