Brighton and Hove enveloped by thick fog

Posted On 30 Dec 2016 at 4:20 pm

Large parts of Brighton and Hove have minimal visibility this afternoon as the city and surrounding areas have been hit by a pea-souper.

There was a thick fog this morning and, although there was an interlude of sunshine around lunchtime, by 3.30pm it was fairly miasmic in central Hove and near Hove Park.

Officials at Hove Greyhound Stadium have allowed the afternoon BAGS (Bookmakers’ Afternoon Greyhound Service) meeting to continue so far.

But there is some concern on social media regarding Brighton and Hove Albion’s match against Cardiff City which is due to kick off at 7.45pm.

A pitch inspection is expected to take place before a decision is taken about whether the match will be played.

    “Miasmic.” That is not a word often seen in the local press. Keep up this sort of thing in 2017. there could be a Vocabulary War with the Independent and Argus.
