The colourful sky was apparently due to the sun reflecting off ice crystals inside layers of thin cloud.

The weather looks set to remain fair over the coming days due to an area of high pressure, but mist and fog patches are possible.

Temperatures will push towards 10C during the day but overnight frost is still likely.
