Britain's longest serving and most charismatic weatherman Michael Fish retired yesterday. His last forecast was just after the ten o'clock news. I'll remember him for saying there would be no hurricane back in October 1987 and then listening to the roof tiles get blown off my house and the trees fall on the neighbour's car the following night. Even though he was only a weatherman he was definitely part of popular culture as Rowan Atkinson would demonstrate. Another hero rides off into the sunset. Alas alack.
