BBC news

Oh, how great are the BBC news teams? I know a certain celebrity duck works for them, but we all know how good his proof reading skills are. This is why then last week a truly priceless quote was heard on the national news, about the closing of the main bridges between England and Wales.

"Chunks of ice, as large as half a metre square, fell 50 feet onto the road below."

I supposed these chunks were a possible 5 to 10 centimetres thick, and fell at over a hundred miles an hour. Or it was due to it being -1c, caused by the cold air travelling thousands of miles from Russia. I suppose the poor people whose windscreens the ice crashed through could be found in the pub later, having a 250ml glass of wine, or a nice quiet pint.

In the words of the pub landlord, "Back off Brussels!"
