Reader photos: People in Norfolk and Suffolk soak up the sun

The summer finally seems to have arrived in Norfolk and north Suffolk and people are taking the chance to top up their suntans.

With the school holidays now in full swing, families are flocking to beaches and parks to enjoy the warm weather.

However, people are being warned to make the most of the good weather, as a return to cooler temperatures and mixed conditions are predicted for the weekend.

Forecaster at University of East Anglia-based Weatherquest, Chris Bell, said temperatures at Norwich International Airport had reached around 23C to 24C.

He said: 'Tomorrow may end up being the hottest day but the next two or three days should be in the mid to upper 20s.

'The thing to emphasise is this is going to be for a short period of time and we are going to be looking at these sorts of temperatures for a fairly short while.

'It will probably stay like this through to Thursday or Friday but at the weekend we could well see showers.
