Spring is definitely upon us and, as this image taken by Wigan Today reader and drone camera owner Brian King demonstrates, the borough public have been making the most of it too.

The picture shows boats back on Pennington Flash in the distance and quite a few walkers strolling along the nearby Leeds and Liverpool canal Leigh branch towpath.

The weather for Wigan is fine for today and tomorrow (April 3 and 4) followed by a couple of showery days before things warm up towards the weekend.
