Nearly 400 temperature records were set in the UK and around the world this summer as the thermometer in Cambridge reached an all-time high for the British Isles of 38.7C.

A new analysis finds that 396 temperature records were set in 29 countries in May, June, July and August.

These included all-time highs in France - of 46C - as well as Germany, France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, as much of Europe experienced two blistering heatwaves.

Although no given weather event can be directly attributed to climate change, increases in the underlying temperature makes heatwaves significantly more likely and more intense when they hit, scientists said.

"Some places in Europe have histories of weather observations going back more than 150 years and yet still saw new all-time highs," said Robert Rohde, lead scientists at the Berkeley Earth climate institute in California, which conducted the analysis.

15-Year-Old Dies Protecting Little Sister During Burglary, Police Say

  15-Year-Old Dies Protecting Little Sister During Burglary, Police Say A 15-year-old boy was killed as he tried to protect his 5-year-old sister during a break-in last week at their home in Port Charlotte, Fla., the police and his family said. The boy, Khyler Edman, was hailed as a hero by relatives and neighbors. “It was a senseless crime,” Sheriff Bill Prummell of Charlotte County said at a news conference on Friday. The sheriff said that around 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, the police received reports of burglaries and numerous calls about a suspicious person who appeared to have been stabbed. When they responded, the wounded person initially fled, but was caught about 15 minutes later. A resident identified him as a burglar, the police said.

As the UK heads towards record temperatures and the world continues to heat up, many have started to question what is behind this spate of hot weather, and how it fits While hot weather during summer – even a British summer – is perfectly normal, it tends to be broken up by occasional rainfall.

Global temperature records start around 1880 because observations did not sufficiently cover enough of the planet prior to that time. Though there are minor variations from year to year, all four records show peaks and valleys in sync with each other. All show rapid warming in the past few decades, and

"As the Earth warms, it has become easier for weather stations to record new all-time highs," he told the BBC.

In the past, around 2 per cent of weather stations would record a new record high temperature in any given year - but this year the rate has been 5 per cent or more, Dr Rohde said.

"As the Earth warms, it has become easier for weather stations to record new all-time highs,"

The temperature was recorded using satellite measurements in the middle of Antarctica during the depths of winter where the sun never rises. These findings, recently published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, are close to the theoretical coldest temperature Earth can get down to.

Globally, July was the hottest July and the hottest month on record - being 0.04C warmer than the previous hottest month on record, in July 2016.

In the UK, Cambridge Botanical Gardens hit a record temperature for the country on July 25.

Dr Friederike Otto, of the University of Oxford, said shortly afterwards: "This July heatwave was so extreme over continental Western Europe that the observed magnitudes would have been extremely unlikely without climate change."

It’s definitely the same [whale].” © Mark Collins He added that fin whales are “found way off the west coast and normally you’d never even see them in the Irish Sea.”He said that the head of the whale was completely obliterated “perhaps from a boat strike”.He said: “Dublin Port made a strange decision just to throw it out to the sea and hope for the best.
