Post-apocalyptic scenes as thick fogs blankets UK beachgoers despite heatwave

A UK beach saw people thinking they were in a "post-apocalyptic" world as they struggled to see in the scorching heat in Wales.

Photographs taken on Saturday (September 9) show Barry Island covered in thick fog as temperatures reach 25C.

One beachgoer said they were unable to see the sea from the sand, but that did not sop Brits enjoying themselves, Wales Online reports.

She said: "I came down for a walk along the beach and was shocked that I couldn’t actually see the sea. Visibility is really poor and it looks pretty post-apocalyptic. There are still loads of people on the beach though making the most of the warm weather – mental that people are actually swimming in the sea."

Another person visiting Barry said they "could not believe the humidity", as Swansea amd Cardiff Bay visitors experienced similar scenes.

The Met Office said Wales would be "a very warm, humid, mostly dry and sunny day” but mentioned nothing of the fog that some beachgoers had experienced.

Some parts of the UK hit even higher temperatures with the Met Office stating they believe today was the hottest day of the year so far.
