OXFORD will be basking in sun this weekend as temperatures are expected to soar into the high 20s.

Despite the heat, a spokesperson for the Met Office has said it won't be 'as uncomfortable as the weather we had a couple of weeks ago'.

Oli Clayton said: "It will be a nice weekend and it will be hot.

"The weather will be hottest in the capital but in Oxford it will still be pretty warm but not the uncomfortable heat that we experienced a couple of weeks ago."
