Sunderland weather radar time-lapse installation footage

A new "state-of-the-art" weather radar has been installed in Sunderland.

The upgraded dome in High Moorsley provides "more accurate and detailed" data of the size and shape of raindrops to help forecast heavy rainfall, the Met Office said.

It is one of 16 "golf ball-like" radars across the UK.
