There will be similar temperatures on Wednesday of around 32C or 33C with the better weather moving across to the eastern side of the region.

Thursday is still expected to be the hottest day of the week with temperatures of 36C possible in Suffolk and across north Essex.

In south Essex, it could be even hotter with forecasters predicting up to 38C.

Forecasters say that the sudden spike in hot weather has been caused by warm air coming up from Spain and the Mediterranean.
