Roads across Cambridgeshire started to melt yesterday due to soaring temperatures of more than 32 degrees.
The B1165 Little Ramper on Newton Road started to melt due to the heat of ‘Meltdown Monday’ at around 5pm.
Cambridgeshire Highways were then called to the B1093 between Mill Hill and Doddington at around 6pm after the road started melting.
Fenland Police tweeted at 6.29pm: “Please be aware the road is melting, highways have been called, approach with care @CambsCC @HeartCambs.”
It comes after a heatwave warning was put in place until Thursday with temperatures expected to hit 30C again.
The level three warning from the Met Office states hot and humid conditions are to persist in parts of the east of England for the next few days and the warning is in place until 9am on Thursday.
By Friday it is expected to feel noticeably cooler and going into the weekend there will be highs of 22C and the risk of showers on Saturday and Sunday.”
