BBC North West Tonight weatherman Owain Wyn Evans has taken home multi-tasking to a new level by reading the weather and then playing the BBC News theme tune on drums.

Evans posted a spoof video on his Twitter account today and it quickly went viral, with comments coming in from around the world. He tweeted: “When they said try working from home I didn’t realise they’d expect me to do the music too.”

Evans took over from the late Dianne Oxberry as permanent weather presenter on BBC North West Tonight last September.
