Sunshine and blue sky bring out the beachgoers
Warm, sunny weather brought many people out on to the beaches yesterday on what was said to be the mildest day of the year so far.
Temperatures only nudged up to 8C in parts of the Westcountry such as Weston-super-Mare, where the Grand Pier sparked against the clear blue sky, but the bright sunshine made for a pleasant spring day for many beachgoers.
Today is expected to be cloudy through the morning with outbreaks of rain and drizzle but is expected to become drier through the afternoon with more brightness at times.
Some areas of southern England are expecting temperatures of around 15C today.
