After weeks of gloomy weather, people made the most of the warmer temperatures over the long weekend.
People headed to beaches, parks and pub gardens to enjoy the sunshine as the Bank Holiday weekend brought the warmest weather of the year and blue skies for much of the UK.
Monday saw the hottest day of the year so far, with Northolt in west London recording a temperature of 24.8C and Kinlochewe, in Scotland’s northwest highlands, seeing a high of 25.1C, the Met Office said.
However, not everyone in the UK has enjoyed the balmier temperatures, with forecasters observing some mist and chillier weather along parts of the north-east coast.
The warm spell comes after a month of gloomy weather that saw Britons stuck indoors as lockdown rules were eased across the country.
A series of heavy downpours meant May was the fourth wettest on record for the UK, and the wettest ever for Wales.
