Having spent most of the past year complaining about the cold and wet weather, most Britons now think it's too hot.

In a survey that confirms everything about our attitudes towards the weather, YouGov found that over two-thirds of us would rather the temperatures dropped.

26% said it was "far too hot", while 41% said it was "a little too hot".

Just 28% said it was "just about right" while a hardy 2% think it's not hot enough.
