Spotlight webcam
This is the live view from Staddon Heights at the mouth of Plymouth Sound.

The camera is extensively used by the BBC as a backdrop for weather reports and for regional TV news bulletins.

This image is updated every five minutes Monday to Friday, during daylight hours, and throughout the afternoon at weekends.

Plymouth Webcam

The camera is controlled remotely from Broadcasting House in Plymouth.

At dawn it is pointed east to catch the sunrise, in the evening it is moved to catch the sunset.

In between it may be pointing at traffic over the Laira bridge, people enjoying the sun on Plymouth Hoe, or ship movements in Plymouth Sound, especially on Thursdays when Royal Navy ships depart on exercise.
