Tomato plant leaves are brown and necrotic. Diagnosis?

Hello all-just pulled off a bunch of caterpillars from my plants.   Next is figuring out what this is, and what I should be doing about it (if anything)! Thanks in advance!image

    Looks like sun-scorch on wet leaves.

    I would say that's all it is, dew or drops of water then hot sun. Don't cut all the leaves off just yet.

    There nothing nicer than picking your own tomatoes, they taste like a tomato rather than the supermarket ones that taste of water.

    I agree - nothing wrong there. It's usually condensation on the leaves then the strong sun burns it off which slightly scorches the leaf - it happens and you should not be concerned

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Coolglass on the glasshouse roof would reduce this problem, stops the suns rays doing any damage.
