Rain that is forecast to fall across the county today is hoped to freshen up parts of Portugal that were badly affected by a north-African dust cloud, such as the Algarve.

The dust was particularly bad on Monday and Tuesday but is now decreasing, with rain set to wash the remnants of it away. Pictures of eerie orange skies and dirty cars have been widely circulating on social media in recent days, with the dust cloud even captured by satellite cameras.
