The best partial solar eclipse since 1999 has begun across the Anglia region but for many the view is spoilt by cloud.
With the eclipse reaching a peak just after half nine this morning, the cloud is breaking up just in time across parts of Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire with promising signs for Milton Keynes and the far west of Norfolk.
Elsewhere, unfortunately, the overcast skies are expected to stay - at least until after the eclipse.
