On Tuesday, the Met Office warn that a thunderstorm could hit the UK on the heels of the heatwave that has seen temperatures soar upwards of 30C in some parts of the nation.

On Sunday, highs of 31.6C were recorded at Heathrow and 30.2C in Cardiff. Scotland and Northern Ireland experienced their hottest days of the year on Saturday.
