It’s not everyone who has the inclination to climb 288 steps to the top of Ely Cathedral at 5am.

But then Laura Tobin has no ordinary job and as the weather presenter on Good Morning Britain she goes where the sun or showers take her!

Today her bosses decided to broadcast her live updates into the morning show from the top of Ely Cathedral.

The 34-year-old meteorologist, who joined ITV in 2012 from the BBC, was happy to do so.

With her crew they also took some stunning shots of the city.

What a day to visit Ely. For as Laura pointed out – frequently – it was the hottest day of the year.

Or, as she told her 57,000 followers on Twitter, “Yay! Today will be the #hottestdayoftheyear so far. 35C that’s 95F in SE & 10C+ average for many but high-v high UV!”
