Cornwall's UV Checker
2:14pm 25th June 2014
We can now check exactly how strong the sun is in Cornwall.
A new website is up and running detailing UV levels.
It uses monitors across the UK, including in Camborne, to show where the sun is strongest.
Health bosses are hoping it will help us judge the risk of sunburn and protect ourselves from skin cancer.
Dr John O'Hagan said: "People are not very good at judging the risk themselves of being exposed to UV, most people assume hot means high UV levels, but if it's cool, particularly if it's sunny and windy, we can get really caught out, so this site allows us to see what the real time UV levels are.
"The south west has very high incidents of skin cancer which has been increasing over the years, possibly due to the amount of time people spend working outside as well as going about their leisure activities, this provides information for people to decide when to cover up."
