Yorkshire’s hottest April day since 1882

The UK has been graced with a heatwave this week with temperatures reaching highs of 29C.

York has seen an influx of people taking over tourist destinations like the Museum Gardens to bask in the glorious sunshine.

Local businesses have also seen their share of success with sunbathers spending their time and money in beer gardens, restaurants and parks.

Phoebe, owner of the Little Bubble box on the Shambles stated that her business was impacted during the winter with the weather being so cold. However she is now hopeful that the sun will bring back punters and get things into full swing again.

BBC Yorkshire’s weatherman Paul Hudson has named yesterday as Yorkshire’s hottest April day since records began in 1882.
