Fires are continuing to spread across Europe due to very high temperatures.

While France and the UK have seen temperatures cool in recent days, firefighters are still battling wildfires in countries including Greece, Spain and Italy.

Scientists have said that heatwaves in Europe this year are becoming stronger and more intense. This is because of global warming.

The world’s temperature has risen 1.1 degrees Celsius since 1880.

So far this year, the amount of land burnt by fires across the Europe is more than three times more than what you would expect by the middle of July.

Over 95% of the fires in Europe are thought to have been caused by human activity, according to the European Forest Fire Information System.
