Havering residents have been enjoying temperatures as high as 30C amid an ongoing summer heatwave.
Yesterday - Monday, July 19 - saw temperatures soar to 30C as both Public Health England and the Met Police urged a cautious approach to the sun.
This heatwave has coincided with the arrival of Freedom Day, which yesterday saw the last of the remaining lockdown restrictions lifted in England.
The Recorder was on hand to capture all the fun in the sun in Romford's centre.
