In last week’s Sunday Telegraph, Peter Stanford repeated the grossly misleading claim that Storm Eleanor had brought winds of up to 100mph, something originally alleged by the Telegraph at the time.
As we know, this actually referred to wind gusts at the top of Great Dun Fell, 847m up in the Pennines. As such, it had no relevance at all to wind speeds experienced in the rest of the country.
I wonder whether Bob Ward will write to the Telegraph to complain!
He finishes his column with a gratuitous puff for the renewable lobby. Quite what that has to do with the weather beats me.
Is it too much to expect the Telegraph to find somebody that actually knows about weather?
