The Met Office have said on that on Good Friday the mercury is set to hit 24C (75F), but rain is set hit the Easter weekend.

The Met Office said, “Cloud and drizzly rain in North and West Friday and Saturday, dry and warm further South and East, becoming cloudier with showers. Sunday sunny intervals and showers, heaviest in South.

The forecaster said, “Clear spells in the south, a few mist and fog patches forming with clear spells in the far north of Scotland where it will be a frosty start on Thursday.

“Despite the chill plenty of sunshine here, still a lot of cloud cover across central and southern Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland.

“Largely dry and bright conditions during Thursday. Most places fine but it will feel distinctly chilly along the North Sea coast where there will a lot of low cloud.

“Otherwise warm sun trying to come and it will be warm at first this weekend before turning cooler later with a few showers.”

However, for those thinking of sunbathing the police are set to fine anyone caught sunbathing or flouting the law.

Matt Hancock said if people continue to break the law and do not follow the rules, then the government “might have to take further action.”

Hancock said, “We’ve said it’s okay to get some exercise, I don’t want to have to take away exercise as a reason to leave home if too many people are not following the rules.

Hancock said that “nobody should be going out to sunbathe in public spaces.”

This comes after many people are ignoring the governments advice, which is “backed up in law” as groups of people are still gathering in parks and other public spaces.

Parks in Battersea on Saturday were full of people gathering, and also along the Thames.

Hancock said, “We’re absolutely clear that you should not leave your home unless it’s for one of four reasons: for medical reasons, to buy food, to go to work if you can’t work at home and for exercise.”

He added that the rules are there for the protection of public health, these are “backed up in law.”

“It is not a request, it is a requirement in law and people need to follow it.

“I just say this to the very small minority of people who are choosing to flout the guidance – you are putting others’ lives at risk.”
