Sun starved Brits hit the beach on Bank Holiday in hottest day of the year so far.

SUN-STARVED Brits have hit the beach today on the hottest day of the year.

People across the country were pictured out and about enjoying the Bank Holiday - as the mercury soared to 25.1C this afternoon.

Bank Holiday Monday is the warmest day of the year so far after 25.1C was recorded in Kinlochewe, Scotland, according to the Met Office.

This has surpassed the previous high for 2021, which was set on March 30 at Kew Gardens in West London when the temperature hit 24.5C.

It comes after two days of glorious weather over the long weekend, sending Brits flocking to parks and beaches as well as pubs and restaurants now that Covid-19 restrictions have mostly been lifted.

Lyme Regis in Dorset was packed with people enjoying the scorching temperatures this morning, while the Promenade in Brighton was heaving with sunbathers.
