YOURS (UK) - - The View From Yours -

Weather fore­casts

The BBC’s new-look weather maps have come in for fresh crit­i­cism.

The changes to the Beeb’s TV and web­site weather graph­ics caused a storm of protest when they were first in­tro­duced in Fe­bru­ary.

Now Bill Giles, who led the BBC’s weather team for al­most two decades, has added his voice to the de­bate, say­ing the old ones were clearer. “The UK map ap­pears a lot smaller. You may be able to see much fur­ther east into Europe but if you want to know what’s go­ing on, say in Southamp­ton, near where I live, then you have your work cut out.”

Big Cheese!

A cheese made by a small Cor­nish dairy has been named the world’s finest. The Cor­nish Kern beat 3,000 prod­ucts from 35 coun­tries at the World Cheese Awards in Lon­don.

The medium-hard cheese is coated in black wax and de­vel­ops over 16 months. Named af­ter the Cor­nish word for round, it is made at Lyn­her Dairies in Pon­sanooth.
