Powerful storms are set to return to the district along with a weekend heatwave of up to 30C, according to Essex weather man Tom Defty.


The east is set to be hotter than any beach in Spain, Mr Defty has warned, adding that even more spectacular storms are on the way for tomorrow and Saturday.

Lightning wreaked havoc across Essex last weekend and pictures were captured by David Clancy of Ramsey Road, Halstead.
