The sun has shone on Cornish tourism.

Pirate FM has been on the line to businesses from St Ives to Falmouth, who say bookings were up at the weekend.

It is after the first hot weather for weeks.

Angela Parker is Sales Director for Callestick Ice Cream Farm near Truro. She said: "The effect was really quite dramatic and very immediate. As soon as the sun shone and everybody was confident that we were really going to have a good weekend, and going on through this week, the phone started ringing, particularly the beach sites.

"We've really got to make hay while the sun shines, as it were. It would just be wonderful if this continued. It would try and compensate for the last six weeks of really pretty poor business, related to atrocious weather."

A spokesperson for St Ives Tourist Information Centre said bookings had improved as a result of the sunny weather, and staff had also noted an increase in visitors extending their stays.

Tregedna Lodge and Farm Campsite near Falmouth added they had seen a rise in last minute reservations, with more local people turning up because of the weather.
