THE North-East has missed out on a weekend of sunshine, as thick fog rolled across parts of the region.

While the rest of the UK basked in balmy spring temperatures and clear skies, parts of the North-East endured a cold, grey weekend.

The famous landmarks of the River Tyne, in Newcastle, were almost obscured by thick fog this morning (Sunday), which took much of the day to clear, although parts of North Yorkshire were lucky enough to see some sunshine.

Although temperatures struggled to reach double figures here, the sunny weather in the south of England meant conditions were better than Ibiza or mainland Spain.

London was the hottest part of the country, with temperatures reaching a maximum of 20.4C (68.7F), according to the Met Office.

The forecast for tomorrow (Monday) does not look much better, with heavy rain expected for much of the day.
