Derbyshire residents flocked outdoors to enjoy the warmest March day in many years as temperatures reached 21C in Chesterfield.

People were out in force for the first warm weather of 2021, where they enjoyed an ice cream in the park and made the most of this week’s easing of lockdown.

Temperatures are once again expected to top 20C today before the weather turns cooler over the Easter weekend.
