BRITISH WEATHER is so unpredictable that a Devon insurance company has launched a policy that will pay out if it rains for more than half the days of a holiday.

Visitors to Britain will be able to recover a fifth of the cost of their holiday if more than half an inch of rain falls for four days of a week- long break or eight days in a fortnight under the new policy launched yesterday by the Devon-based insurers Rothwell and Towler.
