The UK heatwave has produced one of the best and earliest harvests of late summer fruits in years.

Experts are expecting bumper crops of plums, grapes and tomatoes across the country, and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) said it was expecting its best ever apple crop at its gardens in Surrey.

The extreme cold weather that struck earlier this year actually contributed to this boost by holding back the blossom.
