It may be a mouthful to say, but Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch in north west Wales was one of the warmest places in the UK today.And, it was no problem for our Welsh weather presenter Liam Dutton to mention it on today's weather forecast.

Video of a British weatherman perfectly pronouncing the 58-letter name of a Welsh village is going viral this week, and for good reason. Anyone who's travelled through this particular landmark will know how hard the name is to master. Liam Dutton, a reporter for Channel 4 News, was giving updates about weather patterns across the UK when he got to the small village in Wales called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Liam completely nailed the pronunciation and made it sound effortless (for the record: it translates to "Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave"). Liam's weather report was posted to Facebook on Tuesday, and the clip has gained a huge amount of steam.
