Weather forecasters are predicting the hottest day of the year so far for the UK, and we aren't missing out on the sun.

Easter Sunday is set to see Hartlepool enjoy solid sunshine from 6am to 8pm tomorrow with temperatures as high as 21 degrees.

That would make us hotter than the Costa del Sol, which tomorrow is forecast to see some rain and cloud with temperatures only reaching around 19 degrees.

Hay fever sufferes have also been warned of a high pollen count over the next few days.
