Weather Warning


Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 7:01am 4th February 2012.

There is a warning a third of Westcountry businesses are not geared up for extreme weather.

Cornwall is braced for sub-zero temperatures this weekend.

The whole of the UK is on a serious alert.

But Climate South West says even though 80% of firms admit to being hit by storms or cold snaps, many are not prepared.

Spokeswoman Rebecca Eastman says, "I think a lot of businesses, particularly in the financial climate at the moment, have other worries on their mind and perhaps feel that the weather is something that happens all the time and is perhaps out of their control. I think those that have taken action show that that's not necessarily the case".
