Bookies Bet On Scorching September

William Hill are now odds on at 1/2 that we will see the hottest September day for 55 years.

Whilst it is just 6/1 (from 10/1) that there is a record ever September temperature beating the current 35.6C that was recorded in 1906.

“We are sweating on a big payout this week after punters backed an Indian Summer this September,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
