The odds of snow falling on London at Easter have been slashed by bookmakers.

William Hill have halved the odds on a white Easter in the capital from 10/1 to 5/1.

Rupert Adams, William Hill spokesman, said: "Many forecasters have suggested that the end of winter is getting later and later and the latest odds suggest that a white Easter is a distinct possibility,"

Some of the other weather-related bets being offered:

  • Parliament Closed by Health & Safety because of Snow or Ice Before End Of April 30th: 20/1

  • Big Ben To Fail To Chime for weather reasons before end of April 30th: 50/1
