In Pictures: Bridlington basks in a May Bank holiday Monday heatwave

Blazing early May sunshine and warmer temperatures have brought thousands of holidaymakers to the stunning Yorkshire Coast.

This weekend’s hot conditions have been created by a mix of low pressure, light winds and consistent sunshine.

The East Yorkshire Coast, however, didn’t manage the record-breaking temperatures seen further South. The Met Office recorded highs of 28C at St James’ Park in central London, making this the hottest early Bank Holiday Monday on record.

Looking at the long-range forecast, which is not as accurate as the shorter range forecast, Met Office forecaster Charlie Powell said: “It looks like we should be prepared for some pretty changeable weather throughout the second half of May.

“We’re still going to see some dry days, but there’s still going to be some wet days mixed in as well.”

Here are a few photos from a very beautiful Bridlington today. Pictures by Michael Hopps.
