The British Meteorological Office expanded its weather alert health warning on Thursday as temperatures in some parts of the country soared to 32 degrees Centigrade (89 degrees Fahrenheit).
Hundreds of deaths are thought to have been caused in large part by the above average temperatures in the UK's first heatwave in seven years.
On Wednesday the hottest temperature of the year was recorded in southwest London at 32.2 degrees Centigrade (90 degrees Fahrenheit).
On Thursday a level three alert, one below the highest, was extended from the London area to the southwest of England as well as the West Midlands, broadcaster Sky News reported.
An average Level 3 threshold temperature is 30 degrees Centigrade by day and 15 degrees Centigrade overnight.
In Stafford, a town in the West Midlands to which the level three alert was extended, many sought parks and rivers to cool off, Sky News reported.
Some families took their children to places with fountains and paddling pools to help them cope with the heat.
"We are struggling a little bit, aren't we, we've got fans on. We like it, but it's a bit too much for the little ones, to be honest," one woman with a small baby told Sky.
Forecasters have warned that the heatwave can pose a danger for the vulnerable - the very young, the very old and those with chronic diseases.
The warning came as the heatwave is expected to continue and researchers at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine believe it could already have contributed to the deaths of around 650 people in England between July 6 and 14, according to local media reports.
Officials have advised people to be aware of the possible health effects of hot weather and take the necessary measures to avoid physical exertion and overheating.
