Could an Easter weekend of sunshine help Cornwall make up for the storms?

Thousands are set to descend on the Duchy for the double bank holiday.

There were reports of a 25% drop in bookings - but now some places say they've had a flurry of last minute calls.

Some of that is being helped after the rail line at Dawlish got fixed, leading to a flood of positive publicity.

Clare Reynolds from Trevornick at Holywell Bay reckons things are looking up: "Two or three years ago people were booking a year in advance for their holiday. Now we find that people are hanging on to see what the weather's like - and then booking quite last minute.

"But the bookings are coming in - which is positive."

Teresa Greenaway runs Down Ende B&B in Widegates, near Looe and said: "Now the sun's out actually the holidays are looking pretty good.

"We've had a very bad two or three years leading up to this. But we're cautiously optimistic we're going to have a better year this year. The sun being out and Easter being late are all good things."

You can find a full forecast for the weekend here.
