This spring was the fourth hottest on record in Oxfordshire.

The average temperature from March 1 to May 31 was 10.06C.

The hottest on record was 10.5C in 2011.

However, this year’s Banbury and District Show, due to take place on Sunday, has been cancelled after last week’s torrential rain prompted safety concerns.

Chairman of the general services committee, Colin Clarke, said: “Underfoot conditions in the park are poor.”
