ITV News published this video item, entitled “Wildfires blaze in France and Portugal as heatwaves scorch Europe | ITV News” – below is their description.

Firefighters are struggling to contain huge wildfires in France and Portugal as Europe suffers under a severe heatwave and drought.

Meanwhile, in Switzerland, authorities have begun moving endangered fish populations out of some creeks that are running dry.

Farmers and consumers across Europe are also being hit hard by the climate – the drought is causing a loss of agricultural products at a time when supply shortages and Russia’s war against Ukraine have caused inflation to spike.
