Residents are asked to put their bins out by 6am at the latest.

Bin collections across Leeds will start earlier than usual in the mornings while the weather related red alert is in place.

This is to reduce the time spent by operatives in the hottest part of the day.

"Bins should be put out the night before, or by 6am at the very latest on the morning. Please note that we will not be returning to collect any bins put out after this time," the council said.

"Please help by sharing this update with friends, family and neighbours."
