A failed forecast from BBC Weather presenter Darren Bett

A weather presenter pre-recording a forecast and messing up his lines probably isn’t so unusual, but the blooper then being published to the world is less common.

Like most people who live in Britain, we’re pretty obsessed with the weather here at gapyear.com, so quickly noticed this fail on the BBC website earlier today.

It was a shocking start to the video (the caption of which coincidentally begins with “It was a shocking start to the week...") and reminds us once again that weathermen are prone to very, very occasional mistakes.

*Since we published this story and notified the BBC, the video in question has been fixed. Luckily we foresaw such a scenario and used some nifty software to save the original, which can still be viewed above.
