BRITISH people have flocked to beaches as temperatures reach 18C – after heavy fog hit England this morning.
Crowds soaked up the sun with heights of 18 degrees in Southampton, London and Exeter, after thick fog patches had been cleared up.
Sunbathers took off and enjoyed themselves on the beaches of Portsmouth and Dorset.
While others enjoyed the warm weather on Brighton’s famous pebble beach.
It comes after the Met Office issued a yellow fog warning for eastern, south-eastern and south-western parts of England this morning when drivers were warned of chaos on the roads.
The warning was in place from 04.00 to 10.00, and travel disruptions were issued – including delays in public transport and cancellation of flights.
Despite the foggy start, people in the south and east of England are enjoying a nice and warm afternoon that is likely to carry over the weekend.
A rainbow could be seen across Scotland and Northern Ireland that became lighter and more uneven as it reached northern England and Wales.
Low clouds with light drizzle continue in a southeasterly direction in the evening, with some fog and misty in the morning.
On Sunday, most parts will be dry with sunny periods, while winds and showers will continue throughout northern Scotland.
