An expert predicts that a massive dust storm that painted European skies orange today will hit the UK by tomorrow early.

A meteorological front called Storm Celia by Spanish authorities drove dust from the Sahara Desert into the air, forming the cloud. After that, it was pushed over the Mediterranean, eventually engulfing areas of France and Spain.

Dr Claire Ryder, an atmospheric scientist, has warned of a dramatic drop in air quality and a strong likelihood that motorists would wake up tomorrow morning to find their cars covered in Saharan dust.
