Guernsey 'not concerned' about TV weather forecasts

Tourism bosses say it is not an issue for Guernsey not to feature on national TV weather maps - despite Jersey's plea for more Channel Islands prominence.

A petition against "weather forecast discrimination" has been started by Jersey's tourism department and has attracted 1,135 signatures since June.

It followed departmental concerns that forecasting was not accurate enough on UK broadcasts and might deter visitors.

However, Guernsey's marketing and tourism body said it was not a concern.

A spokesman for the department said: "This is not of real concern to us.

"The Channel Islands and Guernsey are regularly mentioned in national weather broadcasts with the forecaster indicating where we are on the map geographically in relation to the rest of the British Isles."
