It’s been the hottest day of the year so far – and people have been taking to social media to share their feelings about the heat.
More than 25,000 people tweeted the word #heatwave on Monday afternoon, building it the top Twitter trending topic in the UK.

Very high levels of pollen and UV mean those with hay fever are in for a difficult time.
BBC Weather presenter Matt Taylor said: “Near perfect summer weather is here to stay throughout this week for many.
“Some parts of the UK could also see their warmest June conditions in decades, others one of their driest Junes on record.”
BBC Weather presenter Tomasz Schafernaker said: “The hot weather will last all week long.
“Today has been the hottest day of the year, but we can’t confirm if 30 C has been broken yet.”
It has become a bit of a British tradition to tweet a picture of your pet in hot weather.Skip Twitter post by @lottyleeming

It’s very hot here today! Usually too hot for a fluffy kitty like me to venture outside, but my hooman is doing her best to keep me cool so I can help her with work!
