It looks like those in the South West may be in luck when it comes to viewing the solar eclipse tomorrow morning.

The event - the passing of the moon between the sun and earth - is due to take place at 8.45am on March 20, when much of the UK could be under cloud.

As the moon passes the sun the skies will briefly darken, but the dramatic effect might not be so mesmerising due to the forecast grey skies.

But for we may be lucky in the South West as breezes as set to move the clouds out of the way just in time.

For those lucky enough to be under the clearer skies, the eclipse will start at 9.23am in Penzance and work its way incrementally later the further north you live.

This is the last total solar eclipse in Europe for over a decade, with the next total solar eclipse not visible in the UK until 2090.
