Hurricane Kevin Vents Its Fury On Hampshire.

People in the south coast county of Hampshire were all rather nonchalant today as Hurricane Kevin made landfall at Portchester Castle.

Residents largely ignored the unusual weather conditions and went about their usual bank holiday business of going down the car boot sale to stock up on tat, or going down the pub.

Hurricane Kevin - a Category 'Not Very Interesting Event' - swept quite incongruously around the medieval battlements of Portchester Castle, following a brief and uneventful flirtation with the Spinnaker Tower in nearby Portsmouth.

Several hardy souls were spotted in Portchester's East Street, popping into The Red Lion For a pint, and going to the cashpoint.

Business at Darcy's Coffee Shop was said to be 'brisk' as seasoned hurricane defiers refused to bow down under the wrath and fury of Hurricane Kevin.

"It clouded over," one resident said. "Then there was a bit of a breeze, and it started spitting. But you can't let the weather stop you going about your business. That'd be akin to cowing down to terrorists."

As the storm swept westwards, towards nearby Fareham, people could be seen on Cam's Hall golf course, carrying big umbrellas.

One resident reported seeing a cat flee indoors through a cat flap, whilst another expressed concerns about some tree branches which were 'moving about a bit.'

For the most part, though, people quite simply couldn't be arsed about Hurricane Kevin.

More as we get it.
