London Lite Monday, 29 June 2009 11 Elfandsafety: Drink water in the heatwave (Andstayinsidefrom11amtill3pm) Brunette Britneys lovelook BRITNEY SPEARS ditched her trademark blonde locks for a darker shade as she stepped out with her latest beau. The singer, enjoying a break from her world tour, was snapped out and about with agent Jason Trawick, who she is said to be dating. In a bright orange top and denim shorts, Britney, 27, showed off her new brunette look as she laughed and joked with Trawick, 37. She even did a little dance for the photographers as they walked across the car park into a home furnishing store in Los Angeles. Britney, who takes her Circus tour to Paris this weekend, recently sparked rumours she was engaged after flashing a diamond ring on her wedding finger. The twice-divorced star has reportedly been dating Trawick, one of her brother Bryans best friends, for months, although it has yet to be officially confirmed. by mark blunden New shade: brunette Britney with her beau Jason Trawick in LA As the capital faces temperatures above 30C today, health and safety experts have stepped in with groundbreaking advice -- drink water and stay out of the sun to avoid dehydration. Londoners received the guidance from the Met Office as it issued a heat- wave warning, with temperatures due to reach 33C -- 91F -- by midweek. This will make it hot- ter than parts of the Mediterranean. In response, the Met Office has issued its first-ever heatwave warning. It advises taking cold showers, drinking plenty of water, avoiding alcohol and too much exercise and staying out of the sun between 11am and 3pm. It also asks Londoners to keep an eye on elderly relatives and neigh- bours and those with heart condition. The heat is expected to be so intense that it will compete with the record-breaking summer of 1976 when the mercury rose to 35.9 degrees centigrade by mid July. The series of common sense warnings were issued after the Met Office expected its Heatwave Plan to hit amber level four, the highest state of emergency. Water shortages are predicted and analysts fear the health serv- ice will become overwhelmed as the frail and elderly succumb to heat-related illnesses. London will suffer most with buildings and concrete pavements retaining the days heat over night, combining with still hot air to give millions several sticky nights sleep. The long-awaited debut of the roof over Centre Court at Wimbledon will almost certainly take place this week after warn- ings that high temperatures could result in some thunderstorms. by georgina littlejohn 30C index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html
