East Anglia has been enjoying a welcome change in the weather this week, with temperatures soaring above 25 C.
While many have been enjoying the summer sun, others are having had to work around the clock to keep up with it. At Wimpole Hall near Cambridge, much of the farm was put on hold over the past six weeks. The cold temperatures and heavy rainfall have created a backlog of work. Now the sun is finally shining, Farm Manager Richard Morris and his team have been working around the clock.
Retailers have also been busy keeping up with the summer sunshine. Pippa Sandison at Boudoir Femme on King's Street in Cambridge has seen a noticeable increase in demand for summer clothes this week.
But the warmer weather isn't being welcomed by the 1 in 4 of us who suffer from hayfever. Dr Pam Ewan, allergy specialist at Addenbrooke's hospital in Cambridge has already seen many patients suffering with recent rise in pollen count.
One of the top temperatures recorded in East Anglia today was 26 C at Mildenhall in Suffolk. While the temperatures may not stay quite as high as that, the next few days are set to stay fine, dry and sunny.
