Bad weather puts chill on staying
ALMOST half of the Yorkshire public would consider relocating abroad because of this country’s bad weather, research has found.
The study, by Bishop’s Move removals, found that in other UK regions such as the West Midlands and East Midlands only 18 per cent and 21 per cent respectively blamed severe weather for wanting to move abroad.
Thirty-seven per cent of the Yorkshire public would leave these shores due to escalating living costs, whereas 20 per cent in East Anglia and 22 per cent in London would leave for that reason. Alistair Bingle, Bishop’s Move managing director, says: “It seems those living in Yorkshire have had quite enough of the country’s bad weather.”
