Holidaymakers were left facing half-term misery amid motorway chaos and hundreds of flight cancellations as Brits tried to get away on what is predicted to be the hottest day of the year.
Drivers and rail users battled through queues, while air passengers were left stranded. But those staying at home are gearing up for the predicted hottest day of the year.
Temperatures are set to reach a glorious 24C tomorrow (Saturday, May 27). The blue skies and balmy conditions are expected to last through the Bank Holiday and into the middle of next week.

Tonight shops predicted a massive spike in barbecue sales as Brits get ready for a weekend in the sunshine. One supermarket alone expects to sell more than 2.2million burgers and 8.4m sausages.
