WHAT a splash the kids made of the hot weather at the weekend.

They played it real cool as temperatures hit the 90s.

The youngsters like 10-year-old Ruqyyah Ayaz, her eight-year-old sister Khadijah and their play pal Shazmin Naeem, who’s 10, got soaked to the skin splashing about in the fountains in the park.

But no-one minded. It was the kids’ annual Water Festival at Mile End Park in East London, organised by Tower Hamlets Council.

They could do what they like—as long as they remembered to bring a change of clothes.

The park rangers last year got more than they bargained for when kids turned the hoses on them.

But this time the rangers knew better—and kept well out of the way while the East End kids got on with the serious business of making a splash in their neighbourhood.
