Over the past few days, I've seen reports
in the British
media about the upcoming heatwave featuring sky-high

Is this just media melodramatics or is 30+C truly considered dangerous territory in the UK?
Many parts of the world routinely experience 30-32C weather with no hint of alarm. I get that people who live in one end of the extreme weather scale will have difficulty adapting to living at or near the other end, but 30C doesn't seem extreme. Or is it?
