It's literally so hot in the UK right now that things are actually melting. 

And, one poor chap experienced everyone's worst nightmare when his leg disappeared into some tarmac that had melted because of the heat. 

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service in the north east of England tweeted photos taken of the young man stuck in the tarmac. 

"Young man stepped on some tarmac and lost his footing," read the tweet. "The tarmac had become so soft during the current heatwave that it melted."
