And oh dear, the Express plumbs new depths, falsely claiming that Britain's worst storm in 144 years confirmed ...    A story that appears to be based on a total misunderstanding of the latest contingency planner's report  which simply suggests a positive NAO (El Nino being one of several factors leading to this) and consequently a milder, but perhaps wetter and windier winter than average.  

Meanwhile, the public will be even more confused when the Met Office decides a storm deserves naming, having already been told by numerous outlets that the wet and windy weather over the weekend was "storm Abigail".  It wasn't.
