A new hole has appeared in the ozone layer, above Britain, new findings have revealed.

After the recent smog reports in across the UK, Brits have now been warned to take extra care as ultraviolet (UV) levels have risen – increasing the risk of sunburn.

Public Health England issued the warning after measurements of UV radiation at sites across the UK revealed unusually high levels.

The ozone layer is what ordinarily acts as the Earth’s natural sunscreen, filtering out harmful UV radiation, but small depletions can make a massive difference to UV levels in the environment. Researchers say that they are unsure what has caused the hole.

People with particular sensitivity to sunburn – particularly those with fairer skin – have been warned to be extra vigilant.
