A sure sign that we want to sell this thing to Europe is that tennis ball has replaced cricket ball.

Other units popular with the media are of course the length of a double-decker bus and an area the size of Wales, neither of which would work across the Channel.

Don't forget 'as tall as Nelson's Column.'

In all seriousness, I'd be disappointed if the new radar couldn't pick up a tennis ball sized object, I've seen 996 put tracks on outgoing 4.5 rounds, albeit for just a second or so, but it's still cool as ****.

I always use "enough fuel to fill the tanks of XX Ford Focuses".

Is it a required part of first-year journalism? Nope. But it is about trying to put things in context compared with everyday objects or the like so people can relate to them. You say the fuel tank holds XX tonnes or cubic metres of fuel and people shrug. You say 200 Ford Focuses and you think: **** me, that's a lot of fuel...

So how much fuel does a Ford Focus take?

About 50 lambretta's?

In all fairness though, if one were to lay the Eiffel Tower on its side and place it in ten olympic-sized swimming pools, I'd be quite pleased.
