  1. Everybody turn to Eurosport - Murray crashing out of the US Open. 2 sets down!

  2. Net migration into the UK rose by 50% to 318,000 last year, new figures show. The Office for National Statistics said this was a "statistically significant" rise of more than 109,000 compared with the previous year. There were increases in both EU and non-EU migration, with the total figure close to 2005's all-time high.

      While one can argue about the quality of the jobs, this should hardly be a suprise given how quickly unemployment has fallen.

      6-0 first set, about to go 3-0 down in the second.

      Federer has smelt blood, he's smashing everything back and pace.

      Bad news for them, it's not actually NASA built. Private company.

      Captain. It's mainly the humidity most people hate which is why spring warmth is great but summers are fine to be a washout.

      Triple, the point is gusts. Hurricane have sustained averages with even higher gusts.

      I do wish people would not make the comparison. Hurricanes are far bigger beasts.

      Robbie. At the moment we see well defined vortex being able to dig down towards the Azores, this is spawning secondary lows being fueled by massive thermal gradiants.

  19. Never mind the winter being over !!! What is happening now in the SW is a catastrophe and is of a historical making. Those poor people are not living they are just surviving. How would anyone want their house filled with water for now going on two months? If I had room I would put some of them up. B & B's nearby should help and put them up. They are never busy this time of year. I would, would'nt you?

      You live on a flood plane and you should not be surpised that a historical rain event produces historically large floods.

      It's bad but they are reaping the consequences of their foolish actions.

      Weight is considered far more important than it actually is by most people. What's more important is body fat percentage and the state of your internal organs. There's a couple of minerals in fruit and veg which regulate blood sugar which is why despite containing fructose most veggies don't end up with problems.
