Another day of sizzling weather saw sun-seekers soak up the heat across the city yesterday.

Youngsters packed into parks and community spaces all over Sheffield, including popular spots such as the Peace Gardens off Pinstone Street in the city centre and the paddling pools at Rivelin.

Children on their school holidays paddled while parents sunbathed - and ice cream vans made blistering sales.

Temperatures topped 26 degrees at the hottest point in the day - one of several warm days this week.

And the warm weather is set to last the weekend, which will be good news for those planning to attend the Tramlines music festival.

The series of gigs is being held at venues across the city today, tomorrow and Sunday, including open-air concerts at Devonshire Green.

Weather forecasters predict a maximum temperature of 25 degrees today.

The sunshine is set to stay for the weekend, with a maximum of 25 degrees again forecast for tomorrow, followed up by 21 and 20 degree upper limits on Sunday and Monday.
