According to the MetOffice, the sea-side town got as hot as 26C on Tuesday, families and friends quite rightly enjoyed a trip to the beach, or having their lunch down by The Quay.

Some even braved the North Sea for a paddle in order to cool down. Others opted to soak in the sun and stretch out on the sand.
