The Daily Telegraph reports that bookmakers have slashed the odds on the month beating previous records after the gorgeous Bank Holiday weather.

And the summer isn't over yet. The Met Office predicts "warm sunshine for most" over the next five days, with a little rain mixed in, particularly in the north west.

August hottest on record and warn weather to continue

According to The Weather Channel, temperatures in the south east look set to hover around 23C and 24C all the way up to the 13 September, and possibly beyond.

The Met Office adds that, while there could be some rain and changeable weather in the north west, the second half of September could see fine, dry weather in the south east.

The outlook read: "A trend towards more widespread drier, settled conditions looks possible for the second half of September. Temperatures are likely to be above normal."
