Temperatures reached the mid-twenties on Saturday and thousands of people headed to parks, beaches and gardens to soak up some rays.

The hottest temperature was recorded by the Met Office when the thermometer hit 25.5C in Gosport, Hampshire, at approximately 3.30pm on Saturday, and the mercury could rise as high as 27C on Easter Monday, according to Met Office forecaster Helen Roberts.

She said: "The very warm sunshine continues right through the bank holiday weekend. We could still see more record-breaking temperatures tomorrow and on Easter Monday too."
