Buoyant mood: Children were making the most of their freedom yesterday at Parliament Hill Lido in north London. As the last schools closed for the long summer break, children everywhere were heading for the traditional fun spots. And the only cloud on the horizon lay in the elements themselves. Weather forecasters are predicting a rather cloudy day today with occasional outbreaks of rain.

Showers are also expected to put a damper on outdoor activities tomorrow, though there will be some sunny spells to look forward to. But nothing could upset these children yesterday. All that mattered was no school and no homework.
