Lincolnshire enjoyed its hottest day of the year on Bank Holiday Monday, with hundreds of people descending on the area’s beauty spots to soak up the rays.

Warm sunny spells meant a surge in visitors to Louth as well as the coastal resorts of Mablethorpe, Sutton on Sea and Sandilands and many were seen enjoying the beach in the glorious sunshine.

Businesses, retailers and kiosks have all been seen busy with visitors snapping up the seaside delicacies.

Inland, Hubbard’s Hills in Louth was jam packed with families, with the shallow River Lud areea full of paddling youngsters.

A highest temperature of 22C (72F) was recorded in Donna Nook.

East Lindsey District Council’s portfolio holder for tourism, Councillor Adam Grist, said: “I am delighted to hear how busy the district has been over the Bank Holiday weekend.

“After what proved to be a slow start to the season, particularly with the weather over the Easter weekend, I hope the May Bank Holiday has provided a real boost to businesses and that those visiting the beach and attractions have had a wonderful time.”

It looks like the warm weather is here to stay, at least for today with sunshine predicted all day Tuesday, with some cloud on Wednesday.
