Phew, what a scorcher! – wagering on the British weather
Believe it or not, Britain is on the verge of a heatwave. And it’s not just the Met Office hailing the good news – the country’s bookmakers appear to be every bit as convinced.

And that’s just for starters, for the bookmaker’s also offering odds of just 6/4 that this will be the hottest summer since records began.
It’s not all good news, mind you – Ladbrokes has a nationwide hosepipe ban at evens.
