Salopians have been basking in glorious weather as we make the most of an Indian summer.

A sunbather relaxing in Shrewsbury Quarry

Sunbathing, strolls and ice creams have been the order of the day since the weekend, with favourite spots in the county such as the Quarry in Shrewsbury becoming host to many visitors.

Despite the doom and gloom of the coronavirus crisis, the UK has been fortunate with the weather this year, with multiple heat waves easing the woes of those who would usually be heading abroad for some summer sunshine.

Forecasters say that the sun will remain for the rest of the week, but it will start to get a bit cooler as we progress into the weekend.

A high of 26C yesterday will progressively drop to around 21C today and 18/19C at the weekend, with sun and clouds.

"Cooler, cloudier and breezier for most into the afternoon. Maximum temperature 21C."
