Rachel Rice BB9

A Spring Splash

A Spring SplashGwent is awash with these yellow oilseed rape flowers as spring came weeks early this year.

Model Rachel Rice is surrounded by the flowers in a field at Lower Machen.

Farmer Paul Rymer, of Ifton Hill Farm, Caldicot, said: "It's all out in flower very early this year, it's very unusual.

"We are having a lot of problems with the warmer weather in April. We'll need to spray the crop twice instead of once and grass seed is probably going to dry out because it hasn't had any rain."

The forecast over the next 24 hours is if for more dry weather with sunny intervals, staying warm with maximum temperatures of 17 degrees Celsius or 63 degrees Fahrenheit.
