And while some people are desperately hoping for a return to normal temperatures, even if only to make the rush hour Tube journey more bearable, others are basking in the summer sun.

As these pictures show, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has proved a popular destination for families to enjoy the warm weather, with youngsters taking to the fountains to cool off.

The heatwave is set to continue this week with a sizzling 36c predicted for Friday - although there is likely to be a slight respite with temperatures of 28c or 29c due for the weekend and the start of next week.
