Jay flies off

Weather forecaster Jay Wynne is leaving the BBC's employ. He takes with him a stack of qualifications: Ardingly College, a degree in Environmental Geography from Aberdeen, an interlude in Japan teaching English, an MSc in Applied Meteorology from Reading, and full Met Office training.

The applied bit ? “I have been known to drive around after night shifts, waiting for the sun to come up. At night it’s difficult to tell what kind of cloud there is on satellite pictures, so I like to see if I was right. More often than not, I am.”

Jay likes playing the blues on guitar, but says he needs more practice.

His departure does no favours to the BBC's on-screen diversity.
