And apparently, 75 per cent of the pollution is caused by the computer, which is presumably the second most powerful system in Britain, reports The Sun.

However, Met Office spokesman Barry Grommett has said that the computer is vital to help forecast weather and environmental change and its predictions helps to reduce global carbon emissions

The Met Office was ranked 103rd among 28,259 public buildings which emits dangerous gases.

Manchester University's Oxford Road campus ranked top in the list.
