On a day when scorching temperatures sent thermometers well into the mid-30s people across the Melton borough have today been trying desperately to stay cool while enjoying the glorious sunshine at the same time.

Ice cream sales have been going through the roof and shops have sold out of fans on our hottest day of the year so far.

As London recorded the UK’s highest ever temperatures approaching 39.6 degrees centigrade, Melton people have been experiencing weather almost as hot.

Our photographer, Tim Williams, has been out and about capturing some of the scenes on this sweltering Thursday.
