Bumper bank holiday for tourism industry

The sunny Bank Holiday has brought out thousands of day trippers providing a much needed boost for the tourism industry.

It follows a cold spring and dismal Easter which meant many traders got their year off to a bad start.

Now things are looking up again with one business in Southend saying it's been a record breaking weekend.

Warm sunshine for Bank Holiday Monday

For most of us some well-timed warm sunshine this Bank Holiday Monday.

It's not looking great everywhere - again cloud will plague Scotland with some rain for the north and west. Cloudy skies for Northern Ireland will bring the risk of showers in places.

Elsewhere patchy cloud and sunshine will mean it will feel warm inland with highs of 22-23C possible, making it one of the warmest days of the year so far. Expect it to feel a tad fresher under the cloud and around the coasts.

Not too much change later - for most a fine end to the day with late sunshine this evening.

Five blackbird chicks in a garden in Minworth, Sutton Coldfield, have hatched following the arrival of warm weather.

These wonderful photos were captured by Nick Clifford, who saw the hatchlings in his conifer tree, four 4ft away from his lounge window.

Blackbird's nests are normally built by the mother out of grass, leaves and other vegetation.
