Nordic countries have registered near-record temperatures over the weekend, including highs of 34C (93.2F) in some places.
The latest figures came after Finland’s national meteorological institute registered its hottest temperature for June since records began in 1844.
Kevo, in Lapland, recorded heat of 33.6C (92.5F) on Sunday, the hottest day since 1914 when authorities registered 34.7C (94.5F), said the STT news agency. Several parts of Sweden also reported record highs for June.
