Why is the sun red? BBC Weather's Charlie Slater explains

A red-looking sun has been reported across parts of England.

The phenomenon has been seen in the South West, the Midlands, North West and North East.

BBC weather presenter Charlie Slater said it was because of the debris and dust from forest fires in Portugal and Spain.
