SOCIAL MEDIA users across southern Spain posted ‘post-apocalyptic’ images as skies appeared to turn orange and muddy rain lashed the area.

According to state weather agency Aemet, African dust – specifically from Morocco and Algeria - was carried in a storm across the Mediterranean and is expected to continue to cover most of the country in dirty rain.

Across Malaga Province the sky went from orange to black over the space of a few hours (pictured below).
