East Anglia is set to sizzle this weekend as temperatures are predicted to keep on rising over the next 72 hours.

Adam Dury, a forecaster at Norwich-based Weatherquest, said: "The temperature is set to rise up a bit again on Saturday with plenty of sunshine and temperatures of around 25C to 24C.

"On Sunday, it may be a bit more humid and muggy, and we should see highs of around 26C to 27C."
