England has been basking in its hottest September for over a century.

The mercury peaked on Friday at 29 degrees Celsius, beating the previous record set in 1895.

For the beach babes in Torquay on the English Riviera, the warm temperatures were a real roasting.

But the sunshine is definitely not hot for the British high street. The change in temperature means sales of this season’s winter clothing lines are likely to plummet.

Forecasters say the heat will break the barrier of 30 degrees Celsius later this weekend.

England’s Indian summer could even put places like the Bahamas and southern Spain in the shade.
