According to a report from US climate scientists, the month of June was the hottest  in the world since record-keeping began in 1880.

The average temperature over land and ocean was 16.22 Celsius.

This means that June was a total of 0.72C warmer than any other month since records have been kept.

New Zealand also observed its warmest June since national records began in 1909.

The findings are part of an ongoing trend of rising global temperatures.

Scientists have noticed that sea ice in the Arctic declined faster than normal for June, and was nearly five per cent below the 1981-2010 average
