In just a couple of hours' time, London will be cast into shadow due to a partial solar eclipse.

Around 85% of the sun will be blocked as the moon moves between it, and earth.

It'll start at around twenty to nine this morning - but people are urged not to look directly at it.

How to watch it safely.
