Weather is one of the biggest talking points in the UK

It might have rained on the Queen's river parade - but the weather is one of the biggest talking points in the UK.

A new report claims it is discussed 282 times across the country every second.

The average person it's claimed talks about it 44 times a month to 18 people, beaten only by family and friends when it comes to a topic of conversation.

Two out of three conversations about it are over the phone and East Anglia is the area most obsessed by it.

The study was commissioned by the Weather Channel.
