All departments are responsible for monitoring and reporting on impacts from the extreme heat in their own sectors.

For example, Network Rail are communicating regularly with the public on rail disruption.

However, impacts related to the extreme heat were limited by the early and accurate weather forecasting by the Met Office, the effective preparedness and response at the local and national levels, and the positive response of the British public to warnings and advice issued by all sectors to take pressure off vital public services.
