Wettest June on Record Hits Cornwall

There are fears holidaymakers will stay away from Cornwall this summer because of the washout weather.
The Met Office has confirmed June has been the wettest since records began, back in 1910.
One Cornish campsite has told Pirate FM bookings are already down by half.
Ginny from Eden Valley Camping near Lostwithiel said, "Last year was the best season we had. The school holidays you expect to be full anyway, but June, July, August last year were a hundred percent full. This year we're not even reaching fifty percent, let alone a hundred percent.
"Repeat business is our mainstay really. It will tell next year. I think a lot of people will just book to go abroad because they will get better value for money."
Provisional figures show the UK had 145.3 millimetres (or 5.7 inches) during June, beating the previous record of 136.2 millimetres (or 5.4 inches) in 2007.
Martin Howlett farms near Callington. He told Pirate FM many of his colleagues are struggling, "They're actually losing their crops completely. If it's Pick Your Own they've lost the season, if it's crops being harvested for supermarkets they're not going to take second quality stuff."3:40pm 3rd July 2012
