Summer has (finally) arrived in Cornwall.

Forecasters predicted wall to wall sunshine from Friday afternoon and said it would last until at least Tuesday.

It is because the jetstream causing all the gloomy weather has started to move north.

The timing for the start of the school holidays has been perfect.

It has led to hopes that last minute holiday bookings will get a boost.

Andrew Baragwanath from Ayr Holiday Park in St Ives said: "We get some motor caravanners who live quite locally in Cornwall and Devon who, if it's a nice weekend, will just start the engine on Friday night and just come down and stay. So, we get quite a lot of that, the late discretionary break.

"Certainly you can do a bit of catch up, but it tends not to be enough. What this town will have lost out on is the short breaks in April, May and June and you can't make that up.

He says it does make a huge difference to the atmosphere on the park though: "People are just generally happier. You get very few problems on the park. All the little niggles that might cause a problem when the weather's poor don't cause a problem when the sun is out"

Holidaymakers Pirate FM spoke to have been out making the most of the nice weather.

But Moira from Glasgow, who's staying in Portreath, said it is not the be all and end all: "We don't come to Cornwall for guaranteed back to back sunshine; we would go abroad for that. There are different things to do in Cornwall. As a family we enjoy going rock pooling, we enjoy going fishing and crabbing. There's no such thing as bad weather, it's just bad preparation and clothing."
