Mayor Dave Hodgson is calling on the BBC to include Bedford on its regional weather map. ITV have done so since Mayor Dave raised the issue with them last year, as this photograph shows. However, the BBC Look East map continues to omit Bedford despite featuring smaller, less prominent towns.

Mayor Dave has launched a petition, which you can sign and share at www.BedfordLibDems.org.uk/Weather.

Commenting, Mayor Dave said: "Bedford is the county town of Bedfordshire. It has a proud, famous history dating back to the early Middle Ages. Throughout this history it has been a cultural and commercial centre for the wider area, and it continues to play this role today.'

"Bedford has a larger population than some other towns that are already on the weather maps. Bedford deserves to be on the map!'

"Please do sign my petition here and we can hopefully persuade the BBC to include Bedford on their weather map."
