There is heavy traffic in Great Yarmouth as tourists flock to the seaside to enjoy the warmer weather.

The mercury has reached 19°C (66°F) in the resort today, which is hotter than Athens.

This is slightly cooler than elsewhere in Norfolk.

The south of the county will see the best of the temperatures with 23°C possible but even the north Norfolk coast can expect to see temperatures in the low 20s.

In London the temperature is expected to reach 24°C.
