Follow our live feed to see how Suffolk and Essex are coping with the unprecedented temperatures in the region.

Some areas of the region have been without rain for nearly 50 days, we have seen extensive crop fires and workers are sweltering in the heat.

For some, the weather has given them an excuse to fill the paddling pool, put their feet up and relax. Felixstowe beach has seen an influx of visitors in recent days now the schools have broken up.
The hot weather is expected to continue for much of the school summer holidays but we could see temporary reprieve tomorrow with thunder storms predicted for Suffolk and Essex. See more here
