The UK is undergoing disruptive climate change with increased rainfall, sunshine and higher temperatures, scientists have said.

In the space of 30 years, the UK has become 0.9C warmer and 6% wetter.

“A lot of people think climate change is in the future – but this proves the climate is already changing here in the UK,” said the report’s lead author Mike Kendon.
