Today we provide you with some of the stunning pictures sent to the online Express & Star gallery as we enjoy a much-needed heatwave.

They create an intoxicating view of our summer so far – from incredible landscapes to celebrations of nature and also people simply enjoying themselves in the sunshine.

Star Witness is an online gallery set up on the Express & Star’s Instagram account. It is free and easy to get your image uploaded on to the gallery.

We have more than 400 on show so far and the site is followed by more than 11,000 people. The pictures reflect the scenes and events in the West Midlands over the past couple of years, showing the change in seasons and the strange effect lockdown had on our county.
