The change will mean less time for a lie-in on Sunday – but that hasn’t stopped thousands of people heading out to make the most of the night.

After a day of stunning blue skies and 20C sunshine, the streets of major cities are busy with people enjoying a mild evening.

The fun started early in Leeds, particularly for one girl who was pushed through the streets in a wheelbarrow.

She eventually hopped out to let a friend have a ride instead – but moments later he toppled out at a pedestrian crossing.

Not everyone had such a good night, however.

Police were seen dealing with two men in Birmingham as their friends stood around, while another group of gents rested on each other as they sat on some steps in the early hours of the morning.

It follows a gorgeous day of weather which saw families head for the coast to enjoy a swim.

Temperatures at this time of year are usually around 12 or 13C, meaning the past few days have given an unusually early blast of summer.

It’ll be cooler tomorrow, with those in the north-west likely to see the best of it as the mercury hits 16C.

Elsewhere, it’ll stay at around 14C in the west and a far chillier 10C in the east.

Officials from the Met Office warned: “With cloudier skies across eastern areas on Sunday, temperatures will be much lower.”

And it’ll stay colder into next week too, with temperatures plunging on Wednesday and Thursday.

SPRING SIZZLER

There could even be snow on high ground in Scotland as the week goes on.

Met Office chief meteorologist Paul Gundersen said: “Although the UK has had a good deal of fine and settled March weather in recent days, a change is on the way from the middle of next week.

“Colder air is spreading down from the north and there’s the increasing likelihood of rain for most areas.

“On the hills in the north, there’s a chance of this falling as snow, although we’ll gain more certainty on that in the coming days.

“With the influence of some unsettled weather, we’ll be seeing a marked drop in temperatures for most with colder air arriving from the north.

“This will see maximum temperatures drop into single figures for many areas, and below freezing overnight.”
