As the sun blazed across the country schools closed and workers dressed down while the elderly and young children were urged to drink plenty of water.

Peaks were 29.7C in St Angelo, Northern Ireland, 31.3C in Prestwick, Scotland, and 34.2C in Penhow, south Wales.

The previous hottest July day was in 1911, when Epsom, Surrey, reached 36C. The highest UK temperature recorded was 38.5C (101.3F) in Faversham, Kent, on August 10, 2003.
