Today is set to be the hottest day of the year – with temperatures expected to reach highs of up to 33C (91.4F).

As the heatwave pushes into its sixth day, pubs are expecting to serve up to 50million pints and Tesco believes it will sell up to four million packs of ice cream and lollies.

Brighton could welcome 150,000 visitors today alone and another 100,000 are expected to visit Blackpool, with tens of thousands more heading to resorts such as Bournemouth and Great Yarmouth.

Sweltering temperatures of 33C (91.4F) could hit southern England this afternoon, just above the current 2023 record of 32.6C (90.68F) recorded in Wisley, Surrey, on Thursday.
