Canterbury ranks in the top five warmest cities in the country according to new data.

Its findings concluded Canterbury was fifth nationally in its ‘Warmth Index’ with an average temperature of 14.7 degrees, 646mm of rainfall and 255 dry days.

Only London, Cambridge, Chelmsford and Worcester were ranked higher.
