Temperatures hit a whopping 28C – only to be outdone by today’s 29C – paving the way for days of fun in the sun for friends and families.

News photographer Sam Stephenson was in Old Portsmouth to capture the atmosphere on Sunday.

Meanwhile our readers sent in their own photos of how they spent the weekend.

This gallery features 20 of the best hot weather photos from both Sam and our readers.

Please note: Every gallery we run has the words ‘Buy a picture’ next to each photograph included by default. Photos sent in by readers are not shared anywhere else and are not available for purchase.
