Brits are making the most of the sunshine after unseasonably high temperatures have driven them to soak up the last of the warm weather before winter arrives. 

People have been spotted sunning themselves on beaches in England, where temperatures have reached highs of 18C.  

It comes after parts of England woke to heavy fog this morning, as drivers have been warned of potential chaos on the roads. 

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for fog in eastern, southeastern and southwestern parts of England, including Norwich, London and Canterbury.

It comes just days after heavy rain brought flooding in parts of the country.   

The majority of the fog was expected to clear by mid morning, with the warning in place from 04:00 to 10:00, with visibility expected to dip as low as 50 metres in some places.
