Bookmakers have slashed odds of snow falling next month after weather experts issued the unseasonable warning.

As cooler air starts to descend over the UK, the bookies now rate it a 3/1 shot that snowflakes will fall anywhere in the country in July.

Odds have also been cut into 5/1 from 8/1 that summer 2016 enters record books as coldest ever.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “The temperature drop has left us with no choice but to offer odds on snowfall in June and July for the first ever time.”
