    On the same note, however I don't feel sorry for the BBC since I pay its extortionate license fee for 3 weather presenters, one in the afternoon, one in the evening and one at late night. So that's three salaries I'm paying for annually to read a script for barely 5 minutes and to look nice...bloody fantastic, who wouldn't want to work for big bloated company?

    I'll inform you that Weather Presenters are employed by the Met Office & they don't read from scripts- its totally created by them- including what they say and the research.

    Also why shouldn't someone be able to do there job when using a walking stick, many people do- Its obviously their decision and they have to make a living.

    Not sure why it would make a difference?! The BBC's security correspondent is in a wheelchair, FYI.
