Pictured: Calm weather leads to build up of 'smog' over Somerset

Calm weather conditions led to a thick brown smog building up in the skies over the Burnham-On-Sea area on Tuesday evening (July 24th).

The lack of wind and hot summer temperatures caused the thick brown haze to form, creating these unusual sunset scenes.

The smog was also visible over the South Wales coastline, stretching for several miles around the Bristol Channel.

Temperatures in Burnham reached a high of 27.9 Centigrade (82 Fahrenheit) on Tuesday on the warmest day of the current hot spell - see the forecast here.
