    A cloud looking like a map of Great Britain has been spotted in the East Midlands.

    It was snapped by Huddersfield photographer Golcar Matt and submitted to the BBC Weather Watchers site.

    Great Britain cloud

    BBC Weather presenter Alina Jenkins said it was a common cumulus cloud, which can often be seen forming shapes in the sky.

    "They're formed by the sun heating the air at the surface," she said.

    "The air then rises and as it does it cools and condenses to create the 'cotton wool' type clouds which often take on interesting shapes."
