It’s Britain’s hottest day of the year and people are struggling

It's sodding hot.

Warm today, huh?

Really warm.

Like hottest day of 2016 warm.

Britain has found itself in the midst of a lovely little heatwave this week with temperatures in the high twenties and early thirties.

To quote Ray Winstone in Sexy Beast, “Bloody hell. I’m sweating in here. Roasting. Boiling. Baking. Sweltering. It’s like a sauna. Furnace. You can fry an egg on my stomach.”

It’s really hot.

So of course, in true British spirit, people are complaining about it.

It’s a lot today

Like, a lot.

It’s even affecting people’s ability to work.

Animals aren’t coping.

People are taking drastic steps to keep cool

Although others reminded us to be grateful.

In true British style, it’ll be over soon.

Stay cool folks

Cherish the good moments.

The heatwave looks set to continue into Wednesday, as the BBC predicts another 30 degree day.
