Two days of voting to go and Boaty McBoatface has 120,000 votes. Narrowly ahead of the second placed Poppy-Mai with 33500.

Get your votes in now. They are legally obliged to name the ship Boaty McBoatface!

(PS - no, they're not)

Well, not surprisingly Boaty McBoatface won the poll, and equally unsurprisingly the boat has been names the RRS Sir David Attenborough. In a nod to the public's preference, one of the ship's remotely operated submarines will be called Boaty McBoatface.

Hope that means honour has been satisfied all round.

I trying to think if they could have 'meshed' the names. I'm struggling.
