A bi-weekly newspaper stepped up its weather coverage by reporting a “giant penis” was heading for a neighbouring city.
The Exeter Express & Echo highlighted the “phallic graphic” which appeared on the BBC weather map on Friday evening.
BBC weatherman Matt Taylor appeared to brush over the point but viewers were quick to spot the rude shape, which represents an apparent snow cloud.
The Express & Echo reported the story on its website with the headline ‘Plymouth obliterated by giant penis – Winter is coming’.
The accompanying story reads: “It seems even the weather isn’t a fan of our cousins to the west, apparently drawing a giant snowcloud penis over the city of Plymouth.
“The funny-shaped weather pattern shown on a forecast during Children in Need is so big, and so oddly shaped, it completely wipes the Janner homeland off the map.
“BBC weatherman Matt Taylor appeared to brush over the point but viewers with a mind for suggestion were quick to spot what appears to be a huge penis-shaped snow storm gathering over Plymouth.
“The phallic graphic is so big that it blocks out the city on the map of the South West – entirely replacing the name of the city with a large, rude image instead.”
