Portugal will remain under a ‘State of Alert’ due to an increased risk of wildfires because of the high temperatures until tomorrow night.

The State of Alert was implemented last Thursday because of the unusually hot temperatures felt throughout mainland Portugal over much of last week and the weekend.

It was originally due to have ended at midnight last night but has been extended until tomorrow.
