Northampton laps up the sun on hottest two days of the year so far
Hundreds hit parks, open spaces and ice cream vans
It's been the hottest two days of the years so far and people have been out and about making the most.
Temperatures nudging 30°C on Sunday and Monday kept the town's parks and open spaces busy — and gave Formula One fans perfect conditions for watching a thrilling British Grand Prix.
And, good news, the summer sunshine is set to last until at least Thursday — although MetOffice forecasters are warning of the threat of a storm on Tuesday afternoon AND issued a warning to stay safe outside.
Here's a few of those enjoying the great outdoors at Abington Park and Delapre Abbey, in Northampton town centre and Silverstone on Sunday and Monday.
