Britain is basking in another day of hot weather, with thousands of people heading to the coast and other beauty spots to enjoy the sunshine.

But sunseekers are urged to keep a safe distance from others amid the coronavirus pandemic, and avoid crowded places.

The sunshine is likely to be replaced by heavy rain and thunderstorms in many places later on Thursday.
