Bookies William Hill say as a result of increased betting they have trimmed the price of a white Christmas across a number of the major cities.

Edinburgh is now 7/2 while the odds from London have fallen from 10/1 to 8/1

Newcastle which has seen the biggest bets placed has seen the odds slashed from 8/1 to 4/1.

A William Hill spokesman said “Just forty-eight hours ago we were convinced that there was no chance of snow but we have seen bets from people with a meteorological background and snow is a possibility!” *For Betting Purposes White Christmas Definition: The company define’s a White Christmas as a single snowflake - perhaps among a mixed shower of rain and snow -to be observed falling in the 24 hours of December 25 at a specified location.
