Good Morning Britain viewers got a glimpse of a pretty Lancashire village after Laura Tobin visited to present the weather forecast.
The 40-year-old meteorologist made the 240-mile trip to Guy’s Thatched Hamlet in Bilsborrow this morning (October 21) instead of hosting the London studio report.
Laura, who travels regularly to other places in the UK including Durham Cathedral yesterday, received a warm response from some Lancashire residents on social media, but criticized by others for taking such a long time trip.

One person tweeted: “@ Lauratobin1 welcome to Red Rose Countyâ¦ we are the friendliest bunch you can meet, our kettles are always on and we have plenty of tea, just ask @TVRav & @NickDixonITV they are always offered tea when they get to the hospitalâ¦ #Lancashire. “
Another said: “I have stayed at the Guys Thatched Hamlet several times, it is a great place to spend the night. Very quirky place and lovely staff.”
However, Laura has been criticized by other viewers about the impact of her weather trips on global warming.
One said: “Another unnecessary trip, for someone who likes to lecture people about climate change, you don’t have to take a number of #hypocrite #otherjolly trips.”
A third person tweeted: “@GMB wow look @ Lauratobin1 AGAIN damaging the climate by making unnecessary trips.”
A fourth said: “Once again, Greta Tobin drove the country doing a one-minute newsletter. And she’s talking about global warming. Hypocrite.”
Another joked: “@ Lauratobin1 in Lancashire, can someone translate what Laura said.”
A sixth person commented: âThe carbon footprint is still taking a hit. “
âWhy does attention seeker @ Lauratobin1 have to travel the country to read the weather? Why is #GMB preparing it?â Asked another.
Another viewer said: “More travel again. Predictions can surely be made from the studio.”
