When this pass was received the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) reported that high levels of air pollution had affected Eastern and South-eastern England, East Midlands, Greater London, West Midlands, Yorkshire and Humberside. In the Scottish Highlands smoke from a wildfire near Dornoch dispersed northwards. Areas of fog cover can also be seen in this image with a particularly large fog bank off and around Southern Scandinavia.
