A heatwave gripping Japan has so far killed more than 30 people - 10 in one day alone - and has sent thousands to hospital.
 
The country has been enduring record-breaking temperatures of up to 40.7C (105F) after nearly a week where thermometers have not dipped below 38C in places.
 
And people have been warned to brace for more scorching weather that threatens to last until the end of the month.
 
In Tokyo alone, rescuers responded to more than 3,000 emergency calls over 24-hours - a single-day record.
 
The youngest known victim of the heatwave is a six-year-old boy who died following an outdoor class at his school in central Japan.
