Record March temperature set at 21.2C in St Helier

Jersey enjoyed its highest temperature recorded in March on Saturday, according to the island's Met Office.

A Met Office spokeswoman said Saturday was expected to be the warmest day and it was unlikely it would be broken again this month.

The previous record for 24 March was set in 1896, when it temperatures reached 17.8C (64F).

Temperatures were first recorded in Jersey in 1894.
