British Public To Cook Up A Storm In #nameourstorms

Adam is the 4/1 favourite with William Hill to be the very first name in the Met Office’s #nameourstorm campaign. Other names in the running include the Greek ruler of the winds, Aeolus at 10/1 and given the propensity for Arsenal fans to ambush Twitter campaigns, Alexis can be backed at 16/1.

“This is an innovative scheme and while it has the potential for skulduggery we think it will be well received and there will be a number of entries,” said William Hill spoeksman Joe Crilly.

First name of storm in #nameourstorm campaign; 4/1 Adam; 6/1 Andy/Andrew; 8/1 Arthur; 10/1 Aeolus; 12/1 Aaron; 14/1 Alex/Alexander; 16/1 Ashley; 16/1 Alexis; 16/1 Ashley; 20/1 Ainsley; 25/1 Austin
