At around 9.30 this morning, people across the West Country should be able to see a partial solar eclipse. The moon is expected to cover up to 90% of the sun.

The last one happened in 1999, and there won't be another in the UK until 2026. Experts are warning people not to look directly at the sun - and safety glasses are available.
