UK sees silver lining from struggling pound

123 RF / Potapova Valeriya

It seems the weakening pound has a silver lining for the UK.

New data from ForwardKeys shows that flight bookings to the country from long-haul markets are on the rise.

They're up to 6 per cent higher than the same period last year.

ForwardKeys says the number of people visiting the UK from China has risen by almost a fifth.

They say tourists have greater spending power because of the weakening pound.
