Sweltering temperatures in Bournemouth have seen a significant boost to the town’s tourism, with some 100,000 people visiting the beach every weekend

Bournemouth in particular has been benefitting from the boiling weather this summer.

The seaside resort has hit its annual income target for beachfront attractions four months early thanks to the heatwave, with hotels and restaurants enjoying as much as a 40 per cent upturn in trade.

One hotelier even said his guests are starting to reserve pool-side sunbeds by getting up early to put their towels down like in Spanish hotels.

It is estimated that 100,000 people are currently visiting Bournemouth every weekend.

But the scorching temperatures have taken their toll in some parts of the country.

In Norfolk, organisers of Sheringham Carnival have decided to scrap the firework display and torchlight procession tonight because of fears that the hot, dry weather will lead to wildfires breaking out.

They have said the annual tradition is too much of a risk to the environment this year.
