The mercury has been rising in Norfolk and Suffolk today as one of our weather stations recorded the UK’s hottest temperature.

Sunny Santon Downham saw a high of 21.2C, the highest in the country. Blackpool came a close second with 20C.

The sunshine follows a wet start to the week, including a disappointingly rainy Bank Holiday Monday.

Temperatures are expected to rise tomorrow and Friday, before possible showers on Saturday.
