UK records hottest day of year so far with temperatures of 27.5C

The UK has recorded its hottest day of the year so far, after temperatures in the South East peaked at 27.5C (81.5F) on Tuesday afternoon.

The highest temperature was recorded at Heathrow, the Met Office said.

The Met Office said the hot weather was due to an air mass from the south bringing up mild air, particularly impacting areas in the South East.

The previous highest temperature recorded so far this year was 23.6C (73.48F) in Faversham, Kent, on May 6.
