Pudsey Parish Church threw open its doors on Monday and Tuesday to offer cool refuge as ‘dangerously hot’ temperatures hit parts of the UK.

The church was open from 12.30pm to 5pm as a ‘cool sanctuary’ as the weather forecast predicted temperatures of up to 39 degrees celsius in Leeds on Tuesday.

Posting on social media, the Reverend Richard Dimery said that one of the advantages of being a big stone building with a very high ceiling is that when it’s very hot outside, the church is the coolest place in the town!
