Does anyone know what might have caused what looks like a cloud of dust that came down last night. I noticed it covering everything on my morning walk.
I checked London air quality sites but they don't report anything unusual.

I noticed too - paid a fortune for my glass root to be cleaned last week & this morning it was thick with dirt :-(

yeah, one of the weather people on the TV were going on about risk of sahara dust last night

this is really weird. I went to get on a boris bike this morning on Harper Road and all of them were covered in a thin layer of dust
