Every year the neolithic Wiltshire monument becomes the centre of day-long celebrations to mark the official start of summer and up to 25,000 people have attended the site so far today, as the sun rose at 4.52am this morning.

And now with summer well and truly upon us, the Met Office is expecting a steady increase in temperatures over the coming days – with up to 86F alone expected this Sunday – when England take on Panama in the Fifa World Cup.
