LONDON: The hottest UK April temperature in 70 years was recorded today as the mercury soared to 29.1C, making it the warmest day of the year so far.

The Met Office recorded the highest temperature in Northolt, west London, on Thursday afternoon.

A warm blast from the Azores off the Portugese coast has caused the mercury to surge and brought a heatwave to parts of Britain.

The heatwave has come more than a month after Britain struggled with the “beast from the east” – freezing temperatures from late February to March when blasts of icy weather from Siberia engulfed Europe.
