Bad weather puts chill on staying

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

AL­MOST half of the York­shire pub­lic would con­sider re­lo­cat­ing abroad be­cause of this coun­try’s bad weather, re­search has found.

The study, by Bishop’s Move re­movals, found that in other UK re­gions such as the West Mid­lands and East Mid­lands only 18 per cent and 21 per cent re­spec­tively blamed se­vere weather for want­ing to move abroad.

Thirty-seven per cent of the York­shire pub­lic would leave these shores due to es­ca­lat­ing liv­ing costs, whereas 20 per cent in East Anglia and 22 per cent in Lon­don would leave for that rea­son. Alis­tair Bin­gle, Bishop’s Move man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, says: “It seems those liv­ing in York­shire have had quite enough of the coun­try’s bad weather.”
