Britain hit highs of 37.8C yesterday – and record high temperatures were followed by a hot and humid night.

Club closures didn’t stop revelers from having fun on Friday night as they took to the streets of Manchester.

It comes as the Northern Brits have been hit with new foreclosure laws, meaning they can meet in pub gardens – but NOT in the back gardens.

Residents of quarantine zones can still gather in groups of six for a pint, according to new government guidelines.

Lockdown rules affect 4.5 million people in Greater Manchester, parts of East Lancashire and parts of West Yorkshire.

The advice reads: “You may continue to meet in public outdoor areas, including outdoor seating or open-air gardens, in groups of no more than six people, unless the group consists only of people from two households.

“You can’t meet people you don’t live with in a private garden. ”

The new rules should be reviewed weekly.

Pubs were allowed to reopen across the UK on July 4 – sparking glee as Britons received a pint for the first time since the lockdown in March.

However, nightclubs remain closed – due to limited social distancing and less ability to keep areas clean at all times.

Despite the new local lockdown, young people were seen drinking and having fun in Manchester – but there didn’t appear to be much social distancing.
