The warm and sunny weather will set a new record for the hottest day of 2020, after the mercury hit 26.6ºC in Cornwall on Good Friday.
Temperatures are expected to remain hot for the remainder of the week – although the Met Office also predicts the risk of thunderstorms in the south and east of England and Wales on Thursday.
Boris Johnson eased coronavirus lockdown restrictions slightly last week, enabling Brits to spend unlimited time outdoors – provided they keep two metres apart from each other and keep gatherings to a maximum of two people.
