Trai Anfield

Trai has plenty to keep her busy when she's not presenting the weather on Look North.

Trai Anfield

Trai Anfield

I was born and brought up in Scotland, but felt right at home as soon as I came to the North East - the weather’s not exactly tropical, but I'm relishing the countryside, coast, eateries, pubs and cultural centres (not necessarily in that order).

Broadcasting is almost an accidental career move for me. I was a countryside ranger, but had to give it up after a car accident left me with the condition ME for several years.

I studied with the Open University whilst confined to home and joined the Met Office when I recovered - armed with a degree in Environmental Science.

I was all set to go into climate change research when they asked if I'd try weather presenting for the BBC - it seemed rather scary, but how could I refuse?!

Besides weather, my great passion is travel.

I’ve lived in the Middle East, hitchhiked around Central America and crewed a yacht round the Caribbean amongst other adventures - even encounters with erupting volcanoes, rabid bats and sharks haven't put me off!

Back at home, I love cooking for friends and pottering in the garden - and my new allotment looks set to keep me busy for a long time to come!

I'm learning to play the piano (apologies to my neighbours!) and like all sports - I'm hoping to learn to surf now I live near the coast, although it looks really cold out there in the North Sea!
