BRIGHTON will be hotter than the Canary Islands tomorrow with temperatures soaring to 28C.

The mercury will reach a high of 25C today, the Met Office predicts, with the hottest conditions at 7pm.

But sun worshippers are in for a treat tomorrow with scorching heat all day.

Thermometers will not drop below 24C between 9am and 5pm, with the peak at 2pm.

High temperatures have encouraged large numbers of people to travel to Brighton and Hove to enjoy the beach during lockdown.

This has sparked concerns among residents and the city council over the ability to social distance, with fears that cramped conditions could lead to the spread of coronavirus.

Speaking today, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he was worried about a second wave of the disease in the UK.

He said: “I think you can see a second wave starting to roll across Europe and we’ve got to do everything we can to prevent it from reaching these shores, and tackle it.”

He said the Government was trying to avoid cases being brought back to the UK from places where there has been a big spike in cases, listing Spain as an example.

British tourists returning from Spain are currently required to self-isolate for 14 days.
