How will the solar eclipse impact the UK?

I’m sure you’ve heard that there’ll be a solar eclipse in the UK, of varying degrees, on Friday morning around 9:30am. However, have you considered the effects it’ll have on the UK?

People will surely stop work or school to check out the phenomena – how much will productivity be affected?

There’ll even be an impact on the electricity grid as people will head outside thereby using less electricity in their homes and for a short amount of time solar panels will stop working! The National Grid has been planning for this event for the last nine months!

What other things might happen and who might have had to plan for them?
