Thursday's prolonged sunshine across inland parts of the Anglia region has boosted temperatures to 25°C at Marham in Norfolk, Santon Downham in Suffolk and Writtle in Essex.

The last time 25°C was reached in the East of England was the 10th of August, making Thursday the warmest day for almost six weeks.

This follows news that the UK has experienced its driest start to September in more than half a century.

Not everywhere enjoyed today's warm sunshine. The north Norfolk coast was affected by low cloud and temperatures here were suppressed to 18°C.

The warm and mostly dry weather will continue during the next few days, although the humidity on Friday could spark some localised heavy thunderstorms.

Northern Lights glimpsed as far south as Norfolk

The aurora borealis or Northern Lights have been spotted as far south as North Norfolk.

The brightly-coloured patterns in the sky are caused by highly-charged particles from the sun interacting with the Earth's atmosphere and its magnetic field.

The aurora are more commonly seen in more northern latitudes.

"Occasionally there are large explosions on the Sun and huge amounts of magnetically charged particles are thrown out into space (Coronal Mass Ejections). If these particles travel towards Earth they interact with the Earth’s magnetic field and increase global geomagnetic activity. The increased activity releases energy into the atmosphere giving off light in the process, which we call the Northern Lights or the aurora borealis."

– MET OFFICE

This week has seen two Coronal Mass Ejections from the sun; the first arrived on Thursday night with the second on Friday night.

The Met Office said the combined effect increased the chances of seeing the Northern Lights in Britain.
