Yesterday was the hottest April day for nearly 70 years with temperatures reaching more than 26C in Suffolk and Essex.

As our region reached temperatures hotter than Nairobi and the Canary Islands we asked to see how you were spending the day.

Take a look at our gallery of readers pictures and our own pictures of Ipswich’s Christchuch Park in the sun.
