A British student who was told she had 18 months to live after a brain cancer diagnosis lived out her bucket list dream of presenting the BBC's TV weather forecast. Laura Nuttall, 22, met with BBC North West Tonight forecaster Owain Wyn Evans and read part of the programme's evening weather report, a video posted by the BBC on Facebook and shared by the Doing it For Laura fundraising website showed. "I never thought I'd be standing there doing the weather forecast," Nuttall, who was diagnosed with a form of brain cancer called glioblastoma in October 2018, told The Times. "But then again, I never thought I'd be doing a lot of the things I've done in the last couple of years." "My policy is if someone suggests something then basically I am up for doing it," added Nuttall, who has also met Michelle Obama, fished with actor Paul Whitehouse and spent a day with Manchester police in her bucket list journey since her diagnosis. "There is so much in the world that I still want to see and do," she added to The Times.
