Heat's on as Britain tops 88F*.

BRITAIN put parts of the Mediterranean in the shade yesterday as we basked in the hottest day of the year.

Sunseekers were out in force from BLACKPOOL to BOURNEMOUTH, right. But the highest temperature, 30.6C (88F), was recorded in central LONDON.

It was a scorcher too for PM Gordon Brown on holiday in EAST ANGLIA with temperatures hitting 28C (82.4F). On a beach near EASTBOURNE, East Sussex, a group of 33 students were cut off by the tide and had to be ferried to safety by lifeboats.

Forecasters say there will be thundery downpours today.

*but rain is on the way!
