Santon Downham in Suffolk has passed 19.7C and Marham is the warmest part of Norfolk at the moment, enjoying a temperature around 19.4C.

Norwich based forecaster Weatherquest said that while these top temperatures were among the highest in the region all year, there is still room for East Anglia to heat up even further as the afternoon stretches on.

The weather looks sunny and warm for the duration of the Easter bank holiday weekend too, with Saturday set to see highs of 22C and Sunday a fractionally cooler 21C.
