Clouds part across Northamptonshire in time for the eclipse

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.

New CCTV cameras are to be installed across the lower promenade along Lowestoft seafront.

Waveney District Council, the Sentinel Leisure Trust, Suffolk police and Waveney Norse have together managed to secure funding for the project

The cameras are being put up after complaints of vandalism by residents.

The cameras are expected to be up and running before the peak summer season begins.

"Community safety is extremely important and although the seafront is a fantastic place to visit and spend time, this can be spoiled by the thoughtless actions of a silly minority. Hopefully this partnership scheme will make a difference."

– Cllr Stephen Ardley, Deputy Leader, Waveney District Council

The cameras will be linked to the Waveney Norse CCTV room and monitored 24 hours a day.
