Peo­ple wear­ing flip-flops and sun­glasses crammed into lo­cal beauty spots and beer gar­dens as weather fi­nally be­fit­ting a hosepipe ban came to the city.

A spokes­woman for the Nene Park­trust said: “It has been very busy - ev­ery­one wants to en­joy the sun­shine and there’s nowhere bet­ter than Ferry Mead­ows.

“We have peo­ple sun-bathing, fly­ing kites and cyling around the park. It al­ways gets busy when­ever it is sunny.”

Jim Mckil­lop, man­ager of Char­ters pub on­town Bridge, said: “Our beer gar­den is the big­gest in the city cen­tre, and it has been re­ally busy from mid-day on­wards.”
