Parts of Derbyshire will nearly be as cold as Greenland's capital today, according to weather experts.

The Met Office said Buxton, for example, will only see temperatures hit 14C.

In Greenland's largest city Nuuk - which is one of the coldest capitals in the world - temperatures won't be far behind with the mercury reaching 12C.

According to a Met Office spokesman, much of July will be unsettled - but there are signs of better conditions towards the end of the month.

It's a far cry from this time last year when the UK was in the grip of a heatwave - with 36.7C recorded in Heathrow on July 1.

Giving the reason for the poor weather at the moment, the Met Office spokesman said: "We're currently on the cold side of a strong jet stream which is bringing unsettled conditions.

"The jet stream is a band of fast-moving wind high up in the atmosphere."
