"Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch". That's enough to make most people's brains shutdown at the thought of pronouncing it, so imagine how Channel 4 weather man Liam Dutton felt when presented with having to do so live on air yesterday.
The north Wales town with the longest name in Europe and second longest name in the world made the news yesterday after it was one of the warmest places of the day in the UK, meaning that Dutton had a serious mouthful to learn before going on air last night. We think it's safe to say he nailed it.
