Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I currently am trying to get some answers around the death of my partner on the 4th November 2013 at 07:15am. Having received information from Rotherham Council that their weather stations nearby the fatal RTA were both down (conveniently). I am looking to find out for myself what the temperatures were on the night my son lost his father due to dire road conditions and no gritting being done.

The last reading Rotherham council had was 9pm on the Sunday evening and that predicted that it would not drop below zero yet I recall a news report on TV indicating that it would. Their hourly readings from then onwards were not functional as the system broke down for 11 hours at 9pm. As my partners accident was at 07:15 am on the 4th I would like to know the temperature predictions for the Hooton Roberts (Rotherham) area please between 10pm on the 03/11/13 and 10 am 04/11/13.

I would be so grateful if you could help me, I know you are a huge company with mounds of resources at your disposal and I am sure it was Look North where I saw the ice warnings for our area on the evening news of the 3rd.

THanks so much in advance

Yours faithfully,
Natalie Buckley
