Radio caller claims red weather storm warnings are ‘scaremongering’
Although the Met Office has issued a red weather warning in parts of the country and advised people to stay indoors as Storm Eunice hits the UK today, one radio caller is having none of it and declared the cautions were "scaremongering."
During Tom Swarbrick's show on LBC, the host chatted on the phone to listener Sam from Cranleigh who shared his discontent at the fuss that's being made over the storm.
"It's a bit windy," the caller conceded but added how the weather is "actually not that bad."
Swarbrick informed Sam that there is a red weather warning coming in across the South East of England, challenging the caller, he replied: "...so that would be your part of the world Sam - from ten o'clock so you've not got the worst of it yet."
"Yeah but my argument is that they changed it, it was meant to come at 5 o'clock and they've changed it to now 10 o'clock and upgraded it a red and it just confuses me because it seems like scaremongering," Sam said.
'My argument is they have changed the time from 5 o'clock to 10 o'clock...'\n\nThis caller brands the red weather warning for #StormEunice as 'scaremongering' and tells LBC he will still be 'climbing a ladder' later.\n\n@TomSwarbrick1pic.twitter.com/r2U1gqB5mS
