Fancy a mince pie in September? Head to Sainsbury's where Christmas has started early

MINCE pies and Christmas puddings have already landed on the shelves at Sainsbury’s  – almost four months early.

Festive foods are out on display despite it being the first week of September with Halloween and Guy Fawkes’ still to come.

Shoppers are being tempted to stock up on mince pies, Christmas puddings and seasonal cakes with summer just a week behind us.

Christmas Weather and 'that' storm

No papers tomorrow so here’s the very latest outlook for Christmas Day and that storm which threatens unsettled conditions on Friday.

Most of us will wake to a crisp and sunny day tomorrow but unfortunately no snow, I believe the correct term is a ‘green Christmas’.

However, if you’ve put money on the white stuff all may not be lost, there is the chance of the odd flurry over high ground in the north - so fingers crossed.
