Weatherman Nails the Longest Place Name in Europe

(Video Link)

The people of Britain need to know the weather they're facing when going out in the morning. If you live in the town of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwlll­lantysiliogogogoch in northwestern Wales, then you'll have sunshine and warm temperatures.

At 58 characters long, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwlll­lantysiliogogogoch is the longest place name in all of Europe. Can you pronounce it? Liam Dutton, a weatherman with Channel 4 News, can. Watch it pour off his tongue with ease in this weather report. Dutton told the Daily Mail that he even pronounced it correctly on the first try.

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwlll­lantysiliogogogoch might be easy for Dutton. Perhaps he should next try the longest place name in the entire world:  Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu, New Zealand. That's 85 characters long.
