WHAT’S ALL THE FUSS ABOUT?
What has caught our attention in the news this fortnight…
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.”

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.
