The sun was captured setting behind famous landmarks such as the Shard, St Paul’s, Canary Wharf, as commuters looked up in awe.

The spectacle came as the Met Office announced that temperatures are set to soar to their highest since mid July, with highs of 27c to hit parts of south-east England.

In contrast to the cool, damp weather seen in recent weeks, the capital stayed fairly dry thanks to the lingering effects of Hurricane Gert.

Southern England enjoyed the best weather as cloud and rain made way for a hot humid spell.

Met forecaster Marco Petanga said: “It’s a combination of warm air coming off the Atlantic, but also a bit of a southerly breeze as well, which is a fairly warm direction for the UK, particularly at this time of year.”
