Has anyone noticed the stupid, short London weather bulletin after the local news slot on News at Ten? Am I the only person struggling to understand WTF it is all about?

Peter Cockcroft bounces excitedly in front of a blank screen with no weather map - kind of a traditional visual aid and quite useful for explaining the weather - telling us in very, very brief outline what the weather will be like. He then spends the same amount of time telling us exactly at what time sunrise and sunset will occur. WTF? How does that qualify as a weather forecast?

Our TV tax is paying for that.
