WHAT a wonderful summer we are having. Isn’t it marvellous to see temperatures in the 20s and lots of sunshine day after day?

Children off school enjoying their holidays and parents taking families to coast and country, even the cooler breezes off the North Sea are welcome in such weather.

It is certainly the best year that I can remember since 1976, if this is global warming then give us more.

The only thing which I find to be a little inexplicable is that no-one in The Northern Echo has blamed it on Brexit.
