The world is in the middle of what is likely be the warmest 10 years since records began in 1850, says the Met Office.

It’s forecasting that temperatures for each of the next five years are likely to be at or above 1C compared to pre-industrial levels.

There’s also a small chance that one of the next five years will see global temperatures temporarily go above 1.5C.

That’s seen as a critical threshold for climate change.

If the data matches the forecast, then the decade from 2014-2023 will be the warmest in more than 150 years of record keeping.
