The sun has been shining on Suffolk and north Essex in the last few days - and tomorrow is expected to be even sunnier with the hottest day of the year so far predicted.
Weather forecasters are predicting temperatures in the region to rise to 26C on Wednesday, meaning it could be warmer than in the Mediterranean.
East Anglian-based Weatherquest has forecast that Essex will be warmer than Norfolk and Suffolk, with the prospect of temperatures exceeding the 26C recorded in Treknow, Cornwall, on Good Friday.
Relaxed government lockdown restrictions now allow for people to make journeys for exercise, meaning parks and beaches in the region may now be busier than in previous weeks.
Popular destinations such as Felixstowe beachfront and Christchurch Park in Ipswich saw an increase in visitors on Sunday as residents enjoyed the bright weather.
