Police issue reminders to sun-seekers as more hot weather on the way


Britons are set to bask in even warmer temperatures on Sunday, as people are urged to keep following coronavirus restrictions while cases rise.

Sun-seekers flocked to parks and beaches on Saturday to make the most of the warm weather, with the mercury reaching 25.2C (77.3F) at Heathrow in west London.

But temperatures are expected to get even hotter on Sunday, with London and the South East due to see the best of the weather and highs of 26C (78.8F).

Scotland and the North West are forecast to see 21C (69.8F), while parts of the North East, such as Newcastle, will be sitting at around 19C (66.2F).

John Griffiths, a forecaster at the Met Office, said: "The day will start dry for most areas, with some parts of northeast England and Scotland seeing cloud during the morning.


"However as the day breaks it will be hot for many with plenty of sunshine going into the afternoon.

"There could be spells of rain in the South West in places such as Cornwall but they should only be temporary."

He added that is due to high pressure and "warm air" moving up from southern Europe.

The sunshine will test people's resolve, knowing a social gathering of more than six people indoors or outdoors in England is against the law, and could lead to fines of up to £3,200.
