Much of Europe has been experiencing a mini heatwave since Friday.

Several countries, including France, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK, have seen near-record temperatures.

It has led to concerns about social distancing as millions head to beaches, rivers and lakes to cool off.

In Ireland, Met Éireann said it will be a cool day, with bright or sunny spells and scattered showers, with highs of 14-18C.
