EAST Lancashire is braced for Tropical Storm Bertha which is expected to track towards the UK in the next few days.

The Met Office has been assessing the likelihood of the UK seeing any effects from Bertha by using their own forecast models alongside models from other forecast centres.

At the moment southern parts of the UK look as though they are most at risk. The remains of hurricane Bertha, over the western side of the Atlantic will come steadily towards the UK during the next few days.

Chief forecaster, Eddy Carroll, said: “There is still considerable uncertainty surrounding this weekend’s weather, with the potential for heavy rainfall and strong coastal winds, along with large waves.”

Keep Calm & Carry On!! Ignore the hype because it's only the fact that London & SE England are the likely target areas that we are being warned of the impending 'catastrophe'.

Well according to that map Europe, and possibly Scotland, are going to Catch this one.

do the headline writers and the picture editors ever talk to each other or do neither of them know where Lancashire is ?
