Hotter than Ibiza! Record-breaking March temperatures will see mercury hit 75F this week

Britain’s sunshine will rival that of Ibiza’s this week as the nation is released from full lockdown to meet friends and family outside for the first time in months.

The UK could see record-high March temperatures as restrictions on outdoor gatherings are eased in England.

The south of the UK will be ‘very warm’, the Met Office said, with some areas in south-east England surpassing the heat in Ibiza and seeing temperatures rise to 75F (24C) by Tuesday.

The warmer and brighter weather coincides with the relaxing of England’s lockdown on Monday, when the ‘stay home’ order ends and groups of up to six people, or two households, are able to meet outside.
