The North East is set to join much of the UK in basking in a heatwave this week, with temperatures of up to 27C expected to hit the region.

The Metro network has issued advice to passengers for using the service during warmer temperatures.

Here is what they had to say:

Sign up to our daily newsletter

Open train windows to let fresh air into the carriage.

Carry water to stay hydrated

Make priority seating available for those who need it.

Will you be using the Metro this week?

If you feel unwell, it’s best to get off at the next station and seek help.
