        The geographical areas mentioned contain general information about the damage, injuries and fatalities caused in particular regions.  In The Times  article, the areas and incidents are listed in geographical order, from north to south of Britain. Whereas in The Sun, there seems to be no particular order, as it jumps from Bournemouth, to Tyneside then to Essex.

One unusual comparison between the newspapers revealed that whilst The Times used the term  lorry , The Sun used the term HGV which is the more usual formal term for this vehicle and tabloids are expected to use informal terms.  This is shown in the

use of the abbreviation  Met. Office  whereas The Times refers to it by the full title  The Meteorological Office .  

Furthermore, the article in The Sun is poorly constructed.  This is shown by the use of a sub title reading   Miracle  followed directly by a sentence describing a man being crushed by a tree.  

        There is a similarity with the information about the victims of the storms.

Conclusion

Overall, the articles present the same facts and the same information because it is their job to present the news to their readers but each has their own way of doing it.

I think the article in The Sun is more effective because  it puts the message across clearly instead of distracting you with barely related sub-stories.  It may deliver the facts in a dramatised way but it still gets the message across and overall is easier to read.

    In formulaic terms, this equates to the Maximum P=(Y-2)X+2, which is correct if you apply it to the table above. I assume that this will continue to work with different numbers of shapes, so I won't test it.
