Blooming lovely!These youngsters from Market Harborough are lapping up the brilliant sunshine in a field of sunflowers near Desborough.

They were out and about in the glorious countryside as temperatures topped a scorching 30C (86F) on Friday as we were set to be roasted by the hottest day of the year.

It’s also looking very warm for South Leicestershire and Northamptonshire over the weekend although thunderstorms are also forecast to hit the region over the next few days.
