In Pictures: Heatwave gives way to weekend washout

But it’ll take more than a little wind and rain to spoil the fun.

The recent heatwave has given way to wind and rain, with warnings of gusts of up to 50mph.

But that didn’t put off the dog walkers and runners who ventured out regardless – while surfers took full advantage of the stormy conditions.
