In the second of our podcasts recorded at our annual WeatherLive Conference in London on Nov 4th 2017 we spoke to two former BBC weathermen, Michael Fish and Peter Gibbs and Ed Ikin, from the Royal Horticultural Society about "The Great Storm" in 1987 when unexpected hurricane-strength winds that battered the southern counties of the UK.

In this episode we discuss the effects of the storm - both immediate and long lasting - with two former BBC weathermen, Michael Fish and Peter Gibbs and Ed Ikin, from the Royal Horticultural Society.
