Scotland has had its fourth hottest summer on record, according to provisional figures released by the Met Office.

The city of Glasgow, which will host the COP26 climate change conference, had its hottest ever summer since records began in 1884. The Met Office said it was unusual for the UK's highest August temperature to come from Scotland.
