The top temperature to have an ice cream is revealed.

Scientists have found eighteen degrees is when we are most likely to have one.

They reckon in hot weather sales can jump up to ten times more what they are in the winter.

That is good news for Duchy sellers as September is set to be warm.

Charlotte Bardon is from Mr. B's Ice Cream Parlour in Hayle. She said: "If the sun is out then people come out and about, normally in Hayle they go for a pasty first then come to us afterwards for their pudding, so if it is good weather they like to have a little walk around the harbour and see what is being developed down at that end of town, the warm weather definitely brings more customers.

"We have had people in that have been in every year for about four or five years, just saying goodbye and having one more ice cream before they head back home, it is lovely to have repeat customers and locals as well."
