Britain basks in temperatures hotter than Madrid and there’s more to come in September 

Yesterday was one of the hottest Bank Holiday Mondays since 1965, as temperatures peaked at 29C.

This meant that the UK saw the mercury rise higher than the Spanish capital of Madrid.

People flocked to beaches across the country to soak up the sun and forecasters say there’s more on the way.

A forecaster at the Met Office has said that temperatures will be on the rise through September.

Craig Snell said: “It was a lovely bank holiday Monday with fine conditions. The start of September looks like climbing again.

“It will feel pleasantly warm in the sunshine. There’s a chance of settled weather from mid-September.

“Temperatures may become warm or very warm and humid at times”.
