27 Tweets That Perfectly Sum Up This Very British Heatwave

·4-min read

As temperatures soared this weekend, the nation did what it does best: took off all its clothes, acquired some dodgy tan lines, started getting just a little too warm now, actually – then tweeted the world about it.

(And the world said: “call this a heatwave!?”)
