It is feared Cornwall's tourist industry could come under attack from Spain and Greece.

This is after one of the wettest summers on record.

Now officials reckon resorts will target the Duchy's visitors with promises of guaranteed sunshine.

Angela Parker from Callestick ice cream tells the Westcountry Tonight it has been a tricky summer. She said: "We're probably running the same as last August but the other months earlier in the year and for the six weeks from the appalling June. What we don't need is the rain and the coolness, and of course, that puts people off coming.

Malcolm Bell is Head of Visit Cornwall. He said: "The Euro's starting to change and it's going to be a bit more challenging next year. Flights are going up, so it's some good news, some bad news but I think, you know, this is now the fourth year that we've had a disrupted summer. It is obviously getting to some people and it does make it hard.

"People wait for the weather forecast before they almost book their holiday, so to some, if they can and if the availability is there, people will leave it for at least a couple of weeks, if not a week, if not a couple of days before they plan to come down."
