People have been basking in late summer sun today as temperatures reached the high 20s for most of East Anglia - with the warm weather set to continue.
The beach at Felixstowe was seen scattered with people who were out and about enjoying the sunshine.
Children could also be seen playing in Christchurch Park in Ipswich as the summer holidays draw to a close.
Dan Holley, from the East Anglian-based weather forecasters Weatherquest, said: "The highest temperature in the region came in Santon Downham at 27C.
"The temperatures today and yesterday are above average, and we haven't seen these temperatures since late July. I guess for many this has been a bit of a welcomed change.

"We are on day one if you like and we need three consecutive days so it is not out of the question for somewhere like Santon Downham," Mr Holley said.
"We are expecting a lot of the same weather for Tuesday and Wednesday with temperatures in the mid to high 20s and some places may even reach 29C potentially."
