Tourists fill the Levante beach in Benidorm, Spain as a heatwave sweeps across Spain on Saturday.

Which city will be hotter this week – London or Emporia?

The answer may have seemed obvious in years gone by, but not this year. A heat wave in western Europe has temperatures soaring to record heights – perhaps as high as 104 in Britain’s capital.
