While the UK was blessed with another weekend of great weather, part of the country was treated to something very special.
In Cornwall, a cloud came in from the sea, as if a tsunami of mist was approaching.
The strange phenomenon has been spotted by thousands of bathers along the southwest of England and in some places, such as Perranporth, people have been prevented from bathing.
A witness, Johnny O’Shea, said on Twitter: “A strange sea haze on busy Perranporth beach – @RNLI lifeguards have put out red flags and say there are 4,000 people on the beach. “
Local bar The Watering Hole spokesperson Robert Job told Cornwall Live: “[It was closed because] they could not see the sea and therefore could not enter it safely.
“Some people were upset, but they must have understood and they made up for it when the ban was lifted later in the afternoon.”
An RNLI spokesperson said: “Perranporth beach was marked with a red flag until 1 p.m. yesterday due to sea mist.”
Unfortunately for those in Cornwall, the haze could end summer vacation prematurely as the Met Office says she could stay.
The meteorologist said: “The evening sun will give way to long clear periods at first, but low clouds are likely to become a bit more extensive in Devon and Cornwall and along the coasts of the Bristol Channel. Minimum temperature 14C.
âOn Monday, there is still a risk of scattered low cloud in the west, but much of the region will experience another sunny day.
âFrom Tuesday to Thursday it will still be warm, but quite cloudy on Tuesday, with maybe a few showers later.
âMuch cooler, windier and rainier on Wednesday and Thursday, but still with good periods of sunshine. “
