|Londoners bare all (or nearly all!) on Primrose Hill as October heats up|
Yesterday the warmest place in Britain was Gravesend in Kent (that town often appears in the records!), where the temperature rose to 29.9C. When I heard that it was just a fraction off the 30C mark I thought that would make the bookmakers happy. But what a day to be sweating over the odds.
A lot of Britons took to the beaches. Many in places like Solihull just stripped to the waist and wandered about. That's mainly the young lads about town. As for the young women, many paraded in skimpy shorts and loose-fitting attire. Warm weather has an effect on the British. It's going to cool down for the working week which should satisfy the CBI. They've had too much on their plate recently. Hot Mondays they can do without.
