Location is completely wrong. Says I live in North Yorkshire when I actuly live in Kent. Have informed the BBC who appear uninterested. Perhaps I should move to North Yorkshire so they can feel competent.

The app itself works well but the forecasts are terrible. It even gets the current weather wrong. For example a light breeze when the actual and Met Office warning is for gales. Today the app says we have sunny intervals when it is very foggy as indicated in the current Met Office warning.

Typical BBC with their constant scare mongering. Warnings for a bit of rain or a bit of wind are ridiculous
