THOUSANDS of people flocked to Bournemouth’s beaches today to make the most of the warm weather which is set to change at the weekend.

Meteorologists have issued a yellow weather warning for Dorset on Sunday in the wake of Hurricane Bertha.

Holidaymaker Alex Ball, who was visiting for the day with his five-year-old daughter Lucy, said: “It’s hard to believe the weather is going to change when it’s like this.”

Abigail Lang, who had travelled to Bournemouth for the day with her two year old son Dexter and some friends, agreed: “It is our first visit to Bournemouth and I can’t believe how lucky we have been with the weather.”
