Been wondering why the sky has a yellow tinge to it today?

Well you’re not the only one.

The sky’s strange hue combined with a pinky red sun has left readers (and us) perplexed.

However, it is believed to be a combination of Saharan dust pulled in by ex-hurricane Ophelia and smoke from the forest fires in Portugal.

The Met Office has issued amber warnings for Northern Ireland, South West Scotland, Strathclyde and Wales.

Yellow warnings have been issued for the south west of England however this does not include Sussex.
