Some of the children performed a sun dance in the playground hoping that the cloud would disperse and they were lucky.

For just a short while the eclipse was visible.

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.

Elsewhere, unfortunately, the overcast skies are expected to stay - at least until after the eclipse.
