THE UK is currently in the middle of a heatwave with temperatures expected to reach 40 degrees next week.

No wonder that many people are investing in gadgets in a bid to try and stay cool.

Here are some of our favourite fans

While you may have a fan or an AC unit at home to cool down the house, it’s not much use if you’re out and about in the heat.

We’ve found our favourite selection of handheld fans so you can keep cool on the go.

You can keep these in your pocket or handbag throughout the day and switch them on whenever you need.
