Our traders have slashed the odds on the UK being hotter than Spain this week.
Temperatures are set to rise to 27C and it’s now just 1/3 that any part of the UK receives warmer weather than Spain.
We now go 5/2 that we see temperatures of 30C or higher over the next week (was 4/1)
It’s also 5/4 that this April goes down as the hottest since records began – the shortest price yet.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “The latest odds suggest it’s goodbye to the Beast from the East and hello again to beach towels and sun cream.”
