Just after 5.30pm Francis was to present a weather report from the news wall. Now, I was reading a paper so didn't fully catch what went on. From what I can tell Francis' microphone wasn't working properly. So he gave up and walked off the stage. Then Anna Botting and Chris Roberts appear, laughing, making excuses - something along the lines of the weather's so bad we wont bother bringing it to you.

didn't see this, but have to admit Francis is my fave weather reporter. I really look forward to him, and I was gutted the other day, think it was Thursday because he wasn't there at the usual time

i did see that, poor old Francis, they do mock him. All he said was "As you can see..." and walked off! and that after describing the weather as "narrow" earlier in the day!
