Easter sizzler: UK odds-on to be hotter than Madrid this weekend


Easter could be a cracker with our traders going odds-on that the UK sees temperatures over 80F before the end of the Bank Holiday weekend.

It’s now just 5/4 that the mercury soars above 80, with 4/6 about London sizzling with hotter temperatures than Madrid!

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “April’s showers are long gone. The betting suggests that barbecue season is now officially open for business over Easter as the country sizzles in the sunshine.”

And with temperatures continuing to rise, we’re not yet ruling out Easter 2019 going down as the hottest ever.
