Summer holiday starts with a scorcher but it’s not going to last

If these stunning pictures are anything to go by, the start of the school holidays this week will have the weather to match.

The Met Office has forecast a warm start to the week as the summer really starts to kick in.

The mercury is set to hit 27C in the south this afternoon with widespread sunshine for much of the UK.

The cities of Birmingham, Manchester and Hull are all set to reach highs of 24C but Scotland will be around ten degrees cooler on Tuesday...
