Putting Bedford on the map

One of the things that has bothered me for a number of years, and I know it bothers many local residents too is the absence of Bedford on the television weather maps.

Toward the end of last year, I contacted both BBC Look East and ITV Anglia asking them to look at putting Bedford on their maps.

ITV Anglia have now done so, as you can see in the photograph, in their 'West' region that covers Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes.

BBC Look East have yet to do so. I want to show them how important this is to us! I have set up a petition at www.BedfordLibDems.org.uk/Weather.

Bedford is the county town of Bedfordshire. It has a proud, famous history dating back to the early Middle Ages. Throughout this history it has been a cultural and commercial centre for the wider area, and it continues to play this role today.

Bedford has a larger population than some other towns that are already on the weather maps. Bedford deserves to be on the map!

Please do sign my petition here and we can hopefully persuade the BBC to include Bedford on their weather map.
