UK summer

Hurricane Gert to save summer?


A TROPICAL hurricane currently swirling off the coast of America could save Britain's summer, forecasters say.

Hurricane Gert, now a category-1 storm tearing through the Atlantic at 85mph, is about to head this way.

But rather than hit the UK bringing up wind and rain, the storm is forecast to head north missing  country entirely.

It will form a deep area of low pressure off the northern tip of Scotland pulling high pressure up from the Continent and the Azores.
