Hundreds of people enjoyed the Bank Holiday sun in Nottingham's Market Square

Temperatures of well over 20 degrees were recorded across Nottinghamshire as the county enjoyed a Bank Holiday heatwave.

Thousands of people across Nottingham flocked to parks, beer gardens and other outdoor areas like Market Square to enjoy the warm weather.

But despite the soaring temperatures and record breaking Bank Holiday across the UK, Nottingham fell short of breaking its own heat record.

A spokesperson for the Met Office confirmed that Nottingham’s record heat for the May Day Bank Holiday remained unbroken.

She said: “It seems that although it was the warmest early May Bank holiday for the UK ever, it was not the case for Nottingham.

“In 1990, Nottingham reached 26.4 C, and yesterday it only reached 26.1 Celsius.”

After the sun and clear skies of the Bank Holiday weekend, the rest of the week will see cloudy skies, with temperatures falling into the mid teens.

Heavy rain has also been forecast for the early hours of Thursday morning.
