Kent Crews Flat Out Fighting Fires

26 July 2019, 11:06

Fire crews in Kent say they have been working 'flat out' across the county after the extreme heat.

Flames spread 40 metres along a hedge in Hadlow last night after it's thought it was struck by lightning.

We're being warned there's still a chance of disruption on the trains.

Yesterday Southeastern and Thameslink services faced cancellations and speed restrictions.

Much of the Thameslink network is being affected by long delays after the overhead cables became damaged but services through Kent seem to be running well.

Turned out to be Britain's second hottest day ever - 38.1C.

Faversham still holds the record of 38.5C from back in 2003.
