Southern UK basks in April heatwave

Parts of Britain are bathed in glorious sunshine and people in Bournemouth have been hitting the beach a little earlier than they might have expected to this year.

Temperatures could reach 25°C, more than 10 degrees above the average for the time of year, with parts of the UK likely to be hotter than Spain, Italy and Greece.

Duncan Kennedy reports from Bournemouth.
