I read the following in Metro newspaper:

Parts of Britain sweltered under the hottest day in almost 40 years yesterday - while commuters complained some buses and trains felt like they were running with the heating on.

It looks like "while" is a conjunction here but which meaning of it used here?

Is it used for contrast here?
