Thirsty Brits kick off Bank Holiday weekend with a bang as revellers hit the town for Friday night fun

BRITS have kicked off the May bank holiday with a bang as they hit bars and clubs in their droves.

Late-night revellers were spotted lapping up the first night of a four-day long weekend in full style.

Thousands of revellers are expect to hit pubs and clubs across the country to enjoy the latest bank holiday weekend.

It comes as Britain is set to be hotter than Madeira for the next few days with splendid 17C temps and pockets of sunshine.

It's expected to be dry in most places with the odd shower breaking through.

In Birmingham, partygoers took advantage of the warm temps to wear racy outfits as they made their way from club to club.

Meanwhile, one drunken yob spent the night in the back of a cop wagon after being nicked for repeatedly swearing at British Transport Police.

Cheering partiers also flocked to the streets in Leeds, with ladies dressed in revealing summer attire while the gents went arm in arms with pals.

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.

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 May – continuing throughout the middle before turning towards the end of the month.

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.
