The temperature of the ground in some areas of Spain has hit more than 60°C (140°F) during the deadly heatwave sweeping Europe, satellite recordings have shown.

It was so hot that a heat map that highlights scorching temperatures in red turned even darker – to black.

Temperature records have been broken on most of the continent, including France, Switzerland, Germany and Italy, where highs of 40°C were recorded again on Wednesday.

The extreme heat is forecast to last across the Mediterranean for around two weeks.
