"To ensure traffic safety, the speed of all passenger and freight trains will be restricted from 2 until 7 p.m. as of Wednesday. Such measures come in response to a longer period of hot weather," Novile Valance, spokeswoman for LG, told BNS Lithuania.

Lithuania has set a new June heat record as the country continues sweltering from extremely high temperatures, meteorologists said on Thursday.

35.7 degrees centigrade were recorded in Kaisiadorys, a town in central Lithuania, on Wednesday. It was hottest June day in Lithuania's history.
