Many thanks Keith and Mark,

Keith someone scratched off part of the M, but agree they probably know about it and just left it as it is :tup:

Ive sent it off to Fred Talbot of Granada Reports, he loved it, hes replied saying it could be a good location for a weather forecast, so if your in Granada region watch out for it  :tup:

Is he still doing the weather? I remember him falling in to the water when he used to do the weather on a floating map in the Liverpool Docks...

Perhaps they would'nt be as keen to do a local report from the outskirts of our town. Someone went round removing the middle letters with a splash of paint. The result was cars entering the town passed signs saying  Well   rough  ::)

It was when 'This Morning' came from Albert Dock - I gather the Dock is not that great any more (not been since we were at the studio there)
