BREAK out the barbie and slap on the sun-cream folks, we're heading for the second summer scorcher of the year.

Weathermen predict we'll be wilting by Wednesday, thirsting by Thursday and frazzled by Friday as temperatures soar to the mid-90s Fahrenheit. And bookies slashed the odds on hitting 100 degrees from 33-1 to 10-1.

Forecasters predict highs of 88F today as we kick off a 10-day sun spell that will be hotter than last month's scorcher.

The Met Office's Roy O'Sullivan said yesterday: "We could well see the hottest day of the year so far on Tuesday or Wednesday. Temperatures will be in the mid-90s."

Sunseekers yesterday headed for the coast, where sea breezes made the searing heat bearable in Brighton, Bourne-mouth, Blackpool, Scarborough and Skegness.

But four beaches at Teignmouth, Devon, were closed after millions of gallons of sewage leaked from a pipe into the sea.
