The winner of the OPAL Weather Photo Competition, Sue Sunderland, visited the Natural History Museum last week to collect her prize.

Sue took home £100 of Amazon vouchers, a free subscription to TheWeather magazine, and a framed copy of her winning photo. She was also given free tickets to the latest Natural History Museum exhibitions.
