BOOZY Brits have hit beer gardens to get the bank holiday party started.
It comes as parts of the UK hit 18C today, making it hotter than Istanbul in Turkey.
And thousands made the most of the sizzling heat by rushing to beer gardens up and down the country to kickstart the four-day long weekend in style.
In Leeds crowds paced the famous pub crawl, the Otley Run in fancy dress.
The historic Otley Run starts at Woodies pub in Far Headingley and finishes at The Dry Dock at the edge of the city centre.
The aim of the game is to have a drink in each of the 16 pubs along the way.
Punters were seen downing drinks as the sun basked down upon them.
And last night in Birmingham, partygoers took advantage of the heat to wear racy outfits as they made their way from club to club.

But one yob took things too far and was placed in the back of a cop wagon after repeatedly swearing at British Transport Police.
Cheering partiers also flocked to the streets in Leeds, with ladies dressed in revealing summer attire.
Some took the opportunity to wear skimpy outfits while one woman was spotted holding a drink between her bra.
And others wasted no time in lapping up easy-going vibes by dressing up as golfers and tennis players while carrying around massive inflatable clubs.
