A hot day for film

It has been (and still is) a hot day in the UK. Having spent the day oblivious to this (air conditioned office) I got home and suddenly realised I had a few rolls of Ilford B&W film sat on a shelf in a rather warm room. The film is supposed to stay below 24 degC - what damage will have been done by allowing it to get to about 30 degC for a few hours?


PS films are mix of Delta 3200 and HP5 400

The HP5 will be fine. The Delta 3200 might suffer a little but I doubt it. A few hours won't make much difference.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.
