THE Met Office has admitted it does not keep weather records because it seemed like a really boring thing to do.
Staff confessed when a graph of September temperatures since 1974 was found to exactly match Nutella sales figures for the same period.
A Met Office spokesman said: “When we say ‘since records began’, note that we don’t specify when.
“Those records are, and always have been, a single sheet of A4 by the phone in the break room where we try to write down if it was raining last week or whatever. Though mostly we forget.
“If you’re really that interested, there’s nothing to stop you writing the temperature down yourself.”
