Peter joined the BBC in 1991 as one of the presenters of the national weather forecast. In 2002 he became the main weather presenter for BBC London News. Peter made his last BBC London television broadcast on 27 December 2013.
Peter is a keen sailor and has competed in two Fastnet Races and has sailed across the Atlantic. He is a Fellow of the Royal Meteorlogical Society and a member of the Royal Television Society. Peter has broadcast from the top of St Paul’s as well as the top of Nelson’s Column and so should keep us very well-entertained.
