STV’s Sean Batty delivers a special present to four-year-old who loves learning about the weather

STV presenter Sean Batty has surprised a young superfan with a home-made weather board.

The weatherman paid a visit to four-year-old Munro Carr at Parkhead Community Nursery in Glasgow’s East End to give him a special send-off before heading off to primary school later this year.

Munro, who has autism, is Batty’s biggest fan and loves learning about the weather.

Batty said: “I absolutely love doing stuff like this and it was so nice to surprise Munro and see his reaction.

“During lockdown, I’ve really got into woodwork, so I made him his very own weather map and symbols. I had a weather map with stick-on symbols when I was a kid, and things like that helped me get to where I am today.

“Hopefully Munro will get good practice with his own weather map, and I’m sure he’ll be bringing sunshine to our screens in the future.”

Sean Batty surprises Munro with the gift

Munro’s dad Grant Carr said: “For us as a family, I kind of see [autism] as a gift for [Munro] because he’s just so clever at stuff, like maths and space and the weather.

“Every day he just amazes everyone, and he’s made me very proud today.”

Nikki Black, headteacher at Parkhead Community Nursery, said: “We always look at this area being classed as a ‘deprivation area’ – but for us, it’s a thriving area.

“We want our children to have the same opportunities as children all over Scotland and all over Glasgow, so it was really nice to help make someone’s dream come true.”
