Soaring temperatures + a slow news day = just one thing. Local newspapers doing endless crap stories about the weather.

From Sheffield to Wales and London and across to Bristol, today's provincial rags are full of tales of over-heated penguins being sprayed with water, shops selling out of ice cream and over-priced cans of coke.

What a surprise.

I'm willing to bet one English pound that someone will do the story on pigs being covered in suntan lotion to stop them from burning before the day is out.

I'll aim to do a complete "phew, what a scorcher" round-up later, so all examples of shite local paper stories about the weather will be gratefully received.
