Beautiful Thames sunrise at Gravesend this morning

Rob PowellWeather

Gravesend in Kent woke up to a beautiful Thames sunrise this morning.

A band of orange across spread across the morning sky as the sun rose over the river shortly after 6am.

Although the sun disappeared behind thick cloud later in the morning, forecasters say we’re set to have a warm week with the good weather continuing for months to come.
