The 58-year-old said: ‘The cloud was a perfect shape of the UK and I knew I had to act quickly before it dispersed.

‘I jumped out of the car and took a couple of pictures.

‘My mum was driving us and I saw it in the sky. I just said “quickly stop the car” as I wanted to take a picture of it.

‘I was so thrilled by it. I just looked up and it presented itself.

Ms Darke said she was so gobsmacked at the sight she forced her mother to pull the car over

‘I couldn’t believe it. I just knew it i didn’t get it then I would never see anything like that again.

‘It was lucky I was a passenger and able to spot it.’

‘Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

‘Where flooding occurs, there is a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.’
