The heatwave in the UK could bring its most intense conditions yet on Friday with forecasted highs of 37 degrees Celsius (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) potentially accompanied by thunderstorms.
The Met Office forecasting service sent out a level-3 amber alert for potential thunderstorms, which will stay in place for most east and southeast England until Saturday morning.
The warning is generally issued when temperatures soar to 30 degrees Celsius (86 F) or more during the day and fall no lower than 15 degrees Celsius (59 F) at night, for at least two consecutive days.
In Norfolk, Greater Anglia are urging passengers to take water on board their trains.
The hot weather has also been causing damage to the railway infrastructure leading to a reduction in services.

|Summary:||Brits seek out beaches, pools as mercury rises|

As temperatures were expected to hit record levels of 39 degrees Celsius (102 Fahrenheit) in the UK on Thursday, people were already cooling off in the sea at St Margaret's Bay in Kent.
Local resident Alan King, 68-year-old retired former banking sector worker, said if it wasn't for his family, he'd be in the shade as much as possible.
"But of course living down here, a lovely day, you want to be down here (at the beach). We'll be out on kayaks, but yeah we will be being careful, keeping everybody covered in the factor 50 or whatever," King said.
Meanwhile Londoners were trying to cope with the unprecedented heat in the city.
Trains were being cancelled, workers were being urged to stay home and even the UK capital's swimming pools were overflowing with people.
Britain's Met Office confirmed Thursday as the country's hottest day on record for July, with the mercury climbing to 36.9 degrees Celsius (98 degrees Fahrenheit) at Heathrow Airport.
The previous July record was 36.7 C (98 F) in 2015, while the all-time record is 38.5 C (101 F) recorded back in August, 2003.
Met Office records go back to 1865.
