A women's umbrella is blown inside out on a beach in Skegness, eastern England July 29, 2009. The Met Office is issuing a revised forecast for more unsettled weather well into the month, a far cry from the "barbecue summer" it predicted back in April. Britain's official forecaster said at the end of June that the rest of summer would probably be warmer than average with near average rainfall. But the chances of Britain seeing a hot and dry summer after two successive wet and mild summers have faded since then, with wet and cool weather spreading across the country again on Wednesday.

Concertgoers chat at Fairport's Cropredy Convention near Banbury in southern England, August 13, 2009. Billed as Britain's friendliest music festival, Fairport's Cropredy Convention ended its annual show on Saturday night in typical style, with a rollicking set by Fairport and friends, this year including the former Cat Stevens, now known as Yusuf. Formed in the 1960s, the band started playing at the southern English village fete in the 1970s because some members lived there. In 1977, they moved to farmland for the concerts. Then in 1979 they had a farewell concert, but liked it so much they had a reunion in 1980 and have done it every year since. Photo taken August 13, 2009.
