A Suffolk mum says it’s so hot today that she accidentally fried an egg on her car.
Sascha Smith, 32, had just got home from shopping when she tried to put a carton of eggs on her car roof so she could close the boot.
But the carton slipped out of her hand causing one of the free-range eggs to smash over the hot metal of her black Mini.
“It started frying before my eyes,” mum-of-two Sasha said. “I couldn’t believe it. I know it’s really hot today but that was ridiculous. I had to run inside the house and bring out my spatula. By the time I got back it was cooked to perfection.”
Sasha said she scooped up the tasty treat, sunny side up, and added some pepper and chives. “It was a shame to waste it. It was cracking,” she said.
Temperatures in Suffolk soared to a whopping 28 degrees centigrade today, and the heatwave is expected to last well into next week.
