The sky over London turned a dark shade of orange on October 16, as ex-Hurricane Ophelia brought with it sand from the Sahara and smoke from Iberian fires. Researchers from the Met Office told the BBC that the unusually strong winds were pulling air from as far south as the Sahara, carrying dust particles that could be responsible for the unusual colours.
