The western horizon is overcast and the new crescent could not be sighted. Still, we received news of positive sightings to the East of the UK from Morocco, Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia. This news, despite not being able to sight locally, makes it sufficient for the 1st of Shawwal and 'Id al-Fitr to be celebrated tomorrow, Monday 2 May (beginning from tonight's Maghrib), for those in the UK, by following the basic rule [dabit] in Islamic Law in this matter that whenever it is known that the crescent has been positively sighted in the East, local sighting inevitably follows, but not the other way round (a lesson in itself about the precedence [taqdim] of an easterly sighting over the local sighting-zone in Fiqh).
