    The temperature rose to 34.3° Celcius in Brussels on Saturday afternoon. Never has it been so hot on 8 August, meteorologist David Dehenauw reports on Twitter.

    The previous record dated from 1975 with 33.2 degrees.

    Dehenauw stressed, however, that today’s records remain relative. The absolute temperature record dates from July last year, when 39.7 degrees was measured.
