A new record for the hottest late August Bank Holiday Monday has been set, with temperatures set to continue rising across the UK.
The Met Office confirmed the new record of 28.6C (83.5F), reached at Tibenham Airfield in Norfolk on Monday morning.
It beats the previous record of 28.2C, set in Holbeach, Lincolnshire, in 2017.
On Sunday, the record for the hottest late August Bank Holiday weekend was broken, when temperatures reached 33.3C in Heathrow, west London.
BBC forecasters say temperatures could reach over 33C later on Monday.
The highest temperatures are expected across south-east England.
The rest of the UK will be sunny but cooler, with highs of around 24C expected in Cardiff, 23C in Edinburgh, and 20C in Belfast.
The London Ambulance Service advised people attending Notting Hill Carnival on Monday to drink plenty of water, use sun cream and remain in the shade where possible.
Last month, the UK’s highest ever temperature was officially recorded in Cambridge at 38.7C.
It beat the previous UK record of 38.5C, set in Kent in 2003.
The government’s advisory Committee on Climate Change has warned the UK is not prepared for the increase in heatwaves that is expected with global warming.
Earlier this summer, it called for more action to make sure homes and other buildings such as hospitals and care facilities could be comfortable and safe in higher temperatures.
Meanwhile, in Frinton-on-Sea, Essex, beachgoers hoping to enjoy the sunshine were left struggling to breathe after what some witnesses were told might have been a fuel spill.
Police, paramedics and the fire service attended the beach at Fourth Avenue after receiving calls at about 14:00 BST on Sunday.
The cause is unknown and is being investigated.
Miriam Lansdell told the PA news agency: “My daughter started coughing. She said ‘I don’t feel good. It hurts to breathe in’.”
