UK hot weather forecast: Britain to sizzle in 24C heat as African hot air sweeps in
Highs of 24C are expected across the UK this week, while the country remains on lockdown amid coronavirus pandemic. Although scorching temperatures are set to arrive, it is vital that the public sticks to the government guidelines.
Despite the hot weather, people should not leave their homes to sunbathe in parks or at the beach.
