    Breaking news!!! Dustbin lid has taken flight across corfe Mullen street.
    Hurricane Bertha sweeps through the county taking dustbin lids across the street and bringing down twigs from trees. The rain has been a feature too with Poole high street seeing 0.5ml fall within the last 24 hours. And the Met Office says there's no let up in sight. "We can expect to see the conditions get worse with damage continuing. people could lose their hair pieces, but rain is our main concern with puddles building on the local roads. We're advising people not to travel unless completely necessary.
    Hurricane Bertha is set to move northwards throughout the day. Stay connected for full coverage.

    No you are wrong - it has been lashing it down here in Christchurch for hours with thunder and high winds.

    Still, love trying to put people down don't you?

    You must live in a different Christchurch to me then or you have been on the wacky bacci this morning, or perhaps you just love arguments as usual, either way you are a complete and compulsive liar.

    A bit wet and windy for a couple of hours and now the sun is shining, just a completely typical British summers day.

    I agree with UKIP - why are we having to import foreign weather into the country / What is wrong with good old 'sunny spells' ... that's what I would like to know ?

    And the Daily Echo doesn't help either.

    If it has to put up these photos then why not put up an English caption like 'mustn't grumble' or ' worse things happen at sea, dear '.

    Did you know you can't even say weathercock thanks to Europe - it is weatherdomesticfowl nowadays.
