Weather: Turning increasingly warm and humid

The latest forecast Credit: Met Office

A fresher start than on previous days with a little mist or fog in places, but dry with plenty of sunshine which will soon burn off any murkiness.

It'll turn increasingly warm and humid later, or hot towards the southeast with top temperatures of 30C (86F).

Cloud will gradually build from the southwest, with isolated, potentially thundery showers possible late in the day.


Flags flown at half mast for Tunisia victims

The flag flies at half mast above Buckingham Palace

Flags have been lowered to half-mast at Downing Street and Buckingham Palace ahead of a one minute's silence for the victims of the Tunisia terror attack at midday today.

The Queen and Prime Minister David Cameron will be among those who observe the silence today.

The bodies of 17 of the 30 British victims killed in the beach massacre have been returned to the UK and more are to be repatriated today and on Saturday.

The first inquests into the deaths of the Britons will open at West London Coroner's Court today.

Coroner Chinyere Inyama is expected to open and adjourn the hearings in which a headline cause of death will be confirmed and the bodies will be released to families.
