London will enjoy pleasantly warm temperatures with some cloud on Monday - providing the perfect playing conditions for Andy Murray as he takes to the court to defend his Wimbledon crown, the Met Office said.

The warm, dry weather is expected to continue in the south for the rest of the week with temperatures reaching and staying around 23C.

There is hope for the thousands setting off to next weekend's Glastonbury festival who might escape the mudslides this year after experts said they are "optimistic" the dry spell will continue.

But they have been warned to pack their wellies just in case as there is "an indication conditions might turn more changeable".
