Dry weather for WW1 Lights Out memorial tonight

The weather is perfect for Lights Out tonight to mark the 100th anniversary of when Great Britain entered the First World War.

The plan is for people to turn off their lights from 10pm to 11pm tonight, leaving on a single light or candle.

It’s a clear night tonight and a dry one, so the lit candles or single lights will be more easily seen.

It is also a mild night so for those wanting to enjoy the view from Rutland, Kinder Scout in the Peak District, Barr Beacon or Turners Hill and it won’t be too cold to enjoy it either

For more information you can visit the Lights Out website here.
