Boozy Brits hit beer gardens to start the Bank Holiday weekend party started in 18C heat

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.

But for one sorry boozer clutching a drink stooped over a bus bench, the night was just too much.

The done-for youngster was surrounded by mates as he guzzled down his drink before passing out and being caught by pals.

The brilliant weather comes as bookies remain confident this coming May could be the hottest on record.

Ladbrokes have slashed their odds for the second time this week on 2022 playing host to the hottest summer on record.

Having been a 2/1 shot at the start of the week, it's now just 6/4 with the bookies for the hottest summer EVER to be recorded this year.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Brits will soon be basking in record-breaking temperatures, if the latest odds are anything to go by."

With predictions May could be the hottest on record, the Met Office has forecast dry conditions for the start of the month – continuing throughout the middle before turning as June closes in.

Its long range forecast reads: "Settled conditions look likely to continue dominating through mid-May across southern areas, with a lot of dry weather.

"Meanwhile, spells of rain may affect northern areas.

"Towards the end of May it is expected to turn more unsettled, with sunshine and showers, some of these likely heavy and thundery, for many parts of the country.
