Man complains to police about hot weather

A man left policemen scratching their heads when he wandered into a station - to complain about the hot weather.

The incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon as temperatures reached the highest of the year so far.

The man walked into a Greater Manchester Police station to moan about it, reports the Evening Standard.

Writing on their Facebook page, GMP Chadderton explained: "We had a male attend Oldham Police Station yesterday wanting to report that whilst on holiday it was too hot for him.

"The male was advised that this was not a police problem.

"Please do not waste police time, the offence carries a maximum penalty of six months' imprisonment and/or a fine."

Many online user were amused by the incident, with one writing: "Some people really are just stupid!X"

Another said: "Give him a holiday in a cell, maybe he will think twice next time!"

One joked: "But it is a crime if he didn't get a tan lol." While another simply said: "What a numpty."

The mercury is set to hit 25C on Wednesday, making it the hottest day of the year so far - and we doubt many people will be complaining about it.

Chris Burton at The Weather Network told Aol Travel: "The warmest spot in the country was Shoeburyness at 22.8C on Tuesday, and it could hit 25C somewhere in south-east England on Wednesday afternoon as a warm plume of air floods across southern Britain."

He added: "The warmth may linger in the south-west on Thursday with highs up to 20C in places, but by Friday all areas of the UK will be seeing temperatures in the low to mid teens at best."
