UK officials warned that some people may suffer from more severe hay fever and asthma attacks as the country experiences abnormally high temperatures in the coming days. 

The Met Office has forecast “very high” pollen levels as temperatures exceed 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit), with experts advising asthmatics and those who suffer from hay fever to brace themselves for potentially “life-threatening” breathing problems.
