People up and down the country are reporting that the sun is glowing red today, including Ringmer and other parts of Sussex.

The colour is believed to be caused by Storm Ophelia, which is causing Saharan sands to rise up and create the effect.

Reports of the unusual colour have come from Manchester and Cornwall as well as many parts of Sussex.

Readers have been sending in photographs of the sight.
