These photos have been compressed so much that they look awful. Better not to have any at all if the quality is going to be this bad.

You should see the other pics! This is probably the best one! Most of them are libary pics, like the 'N' reg fire engine that regularly pops up!

Why can't the echo do anything properly? Everything looks or reads so work experienced. Embarrassing.

Thanks for the warning, Echo... I didn't need the pics, I used the words to get the idea... You know... I read the article. Seemed to be more relevant, the actual info , I mean. Almost felt like the real point was to warn us of significantly reduced visibility for the next few hours, which is pretty useful information, actually.

I wonder how many motorists were driving in the fog with no lights! Then you get the motorists that drive at night when there is no fog with their fog lights on!
