In pictures: Britain bakes in high summer temperatures

The fine weather has continued – although there is a warning in some regions for storms.

Britain has basked in warm temperatures as the heatwave continues.

Despite fine weather up and down the country, the Met Office issued a weather warning for thunderstorms – the first such advisory since the service was introduced.

Forecasters said storms may develop and bring torrential rain, hail and lightning to places in south-west England and Wales on Sunday. The yellow warning runs from 6am to 10pm, while the heatwave is set to continue for the rest of the week.
