July was the hottest month ever recorded, according to American government scientists.

Both global land and ocean temperatures were 0.9 degrees centigrade above the 20th century average.

Countries from Asia to Europe have been scorched by heatwaves and wildfires, while extreme weather of another form, flooding, has also left a trail of devastation.
