Significant Squall line moving East across the UK!

Parts of the UK will see a short but potentially dangerous spell of weather over the next few hours.

A strong squall line has developed and is currently heading Eastwards across the UK.

As you can see from the picture many cities including  Nottingham, Sheffield, Bradford, Leeds, Newcastle, Hull and others places in the area will see some torrential rain and very strong winds for a short period of time making travelling conditions particularly hazardous.

There is also an isolated risk of the odd rumble of thunder as this strong Squall line passes. 

Your Christmas tree will be crawling with bugs!

Everyone loves Christmas right? And everyone loves a real Christmas tree aswell. 

Well a lot of you do and that might not be so great after all.

It turns out bringing the outdoors indoors also means bringing in the creepy crawlies to share your home aswell.

The most common insects using your Christmas tree as its home are Aphids. These 6 legged creatures will generally remain on the tree however should they produce offspring then you could find a winged variety around the home.

Its not just these that will be entering the home as you bring the tree in. Mites & of course spiders also enjoy a nice Christmas tree to call home. 

It is recommended, And i will be honest ive never known anyone do this, But buy your tree, Then let it stay in your garage for a day to give these bugs time to vacate, Then finally shake the tree before bringing inside.

Merry Christmas.
