"An amazing view greeted me this morning at West Bay in Dorset where a bank of fog was flowing over the cliffs like a waterfall. I sent the drone up and took some time lapses to create this beautiful video"

There has been dense fog is some parts of the region this morning. The adverse weather has caused some flights from the region's airports to be cancelled or delayed. The advice too air passengers is to check before travel.

Meanwhile police forces are reminding drivers of the official guidelines for driving a vehicle in foggy conditions.

Here's an excerpt from the Highway Code's guidelines for driving in fog - Rule 235.

When driving in fog you should:

  • use your lights as required
  • keep a safe distance behind the vehicle in front. Rear lights can give a false sense of security
  • be able to pull up well within the distance you can see clearly. This is particularly important on motorways and dual carriageways, as vehicles are travelling faster
  • use your windscreen wipers and demisters
  • beware of other drivers not using headlights
  • not accelerate to get away from a vehicle which is too close behind you
  • check your mirrors before you slow down. Then use your brakes so that your brake lights warn drivers behind you that you are slowing down
  • stop in the correct position at a junction with limited visibility and listen for traffic. When you are sure it is safe to emerge, do so positively and do not hesitate in a position that puts you directly in the path of approaching vehicles.
Slow down in fog, even if the road seems clear - a bank of fog may suddenly appear
