Peterborough Telegraph readers have been sending in their photos of today’s unusually coloured sky and sun over the city.

While people should not look directly at the sun, photos of today’s odd coloured sky can be tweeted to @peterboroughtel messaged to us via Facebook or emailed to paul.fisher@jpress.co.uk
