Schoolchildren watch through special eclipse viewers

Cloud cover did not stop children from Greenside Primary School in Pudsey from trying to watch this morning's partial eclipse.

The pupils, who had made special viewers to see the event did manage to capture a glimpse between breaks in the cloud. They will be considerably older next time there is a comparable solar eclipse in this country, which is due in 2026, and it will be 2090, until Britain sees another total eclipse.
