THE WINTER weather in the North Yorkshire fishing town of Whitby can be pretty inhospitable.

So bad in fact that this year the town is planning to hold its Christmas Fayre in June to avoid the rain and snow.

Dorothy Krengel, one of the organisers, said: "We did quite well considering, but we had people having car crashes because of the conditions and some people were snowed in."
