A hotel owner in Bournemouth has offered to pay guests £10 for every day it rains on their holiday.

A hotel owner in Bournemouth is offering to pay guests £10 for every day it rains on their holiday.

Sarah Uzzell, owner of the Arlington Hotel, plans to run the offer in August after a drop in bookings following the wet start to the summer.

She said: "What I'm trying to do is persuade anyone who hasn't booked a holiday in August to take the plunge."

The hotel will pay out if the Met Office records more than 0.25mm daily rainfall at Bournemouth Airport.
