The current heatwave means that sunglasses and a bottle of water are as much an essential when going out as your keys, phone and wallet.

And while some people are desperately hoping for a return to normal temperatures, even if only to make the rush hour Tube journey more bearable, others are basking in the summer sun.

As these pictures show, the area around Tower Bridge has proved a popular sunbathing spot, with hundreds taking to the grass every day to top up their tans - and keep the ice cream traders busy as well.

The heatwave is set to continue this week with a sizzling 36c predicted for Friday - although there is likely to be a slight respite with temperatures of 28c or 29c due for the weekend and the start of next week.
