The summer heatwave is set to last until the middle of August, weather forecasters said today – as youngsters across Derbyshire look forward to six weeks off school.

The hot spell is expected to continue for at least three weeks with the occasional thunderstorm or heavy shower, according to the Met Office.

Nicola Maxey, of the Met Office, said: “We are looking at settled, sunny and dry weather into the middle of August, with above average temperatures and occasional summer showers.

“It is a lovely start to the school summer holidays and will remain warm throughout next week.”
