Thomas Cook has seen a boost in sales in summer holidays as people try to escape the gloomy British weather.

The UK's second biggest travel company has its head office in Peterborough.

The group, which was recently forced to turn to its banks for an additional £200 million of loans, reported an underlying operating loss of £26.5 million in the three months to June 30 due to tough trading conditions.
