FELIXSTOWE: Spring has sprung a month early, with warm temperatures drawing people to Suffolk’s sunny coastline.

More accustomed to wintry showers and arctic blasts in February, people in Felixstowe yesterday enjoyed the bright, mild day on the beach.

But while the mercury is set to creep even higher, the sunshine is likely to disappear, with cloudier skies predicted today.

Forecaster Phil Garner at WeatherQuest said temperatures have been above the average 7C expected at this time of year.

Speaking last night, he said: “It has been lovely today, with almost unbroken sunshine.
