The month of June is to de-catagorised from a summer month to that of an autumn one after the Met Office became frustrated by the number of complaints they were receiving from the General public as a result of the inclement cool weather that much of the UK receives.

June, synonymous once, with hot dry weather, Wimbledon, Glastonbury and the longest day is developing into something of a 'damp squid'.

June will now be classified as an autumn month meaning that the calendar will soon look as follows, Jan/Feb/Mar/Apr/May/July/Aug/Sep/June/Oct/Nov/Dec meaning that autumn will now be extended to five months with summer being shortened by one month.

Met Office spokesperson Dennis Evans said, 'Whether it be global warming or low pressure fronts from Spain and France, we have made the bold move to amend the traditional calendar and extend autumn as let's be honest, it makes sense'.

The changes to the calendar will only come into effect in 2011 to allow farmers to prepare for this change.

Evans continued, 'The freakish weather is something that we are all witnessing and experiencing. My eldest daughter is studying at Newcastle University and they must have lots of rain as I heard her comment that she regularly gets 9 inches on a Saturday evening after a night out with the girls.'
