Updated my galaxy s8 plus to Oreo this morning 👌 my weather location is now wrong 😕 it says I'm in Newcastle-under-Lyme when in fact I am in Newcastle, County Down, Northern Ireland..... 200+ miles from Newcastle-under-Lyme. How can I sort this problem?

Open the app and refresh?
Is location turned on in phone settings.

Which weather app is it?
Or is it the native Samsung one?

Depends what app is trying to access your location - I see that it's obvioulsy incorrect so either check if the app has permissions via Settings > Apps > App permissions > location and check there for the app. Sometimes doing this via data will show incorrect (same happenend to me) unless your connected via WiFi that is.

Check what location shows with just data and WiFi and see if both give incorrect locations even after allowing access and if it does then maybe it's the GPS settings.

It's the generic Samsung weather app that you can add to home screen from themes. It's the same on my girlfriends 8 edge. I have contacted Samsung and got automated email back. Google maps shows correct location, met office weather app shows correct location. Samsung weather shows correct location but wrong name of location

Try clearing your cache via recovery and since its fine on other apps. Try long pressing the widget on the home to see if you can change settings and if not then try locating that app on systems apps on android and clearing the data.

@Brt5586 I have done full recovery and reset of the phone since starting this thread.... Still saying Newcastle-under-Lyme 🤔

Ok looks like you prob found a bug in oreo then! Try an alternative weather widget by searching on Google play for weather widgets.
