The staycation effect boosted profits and sales at the owner of Butlins and Haven Holidays, it has been reported, helping the company deliver a £43.9 million dividend.

Bourne Leisure, which operates caravan parks and hotels under various brands, including Warner Leisure hotels, recorded a group turnover last year of £813.7 million, up 1.4%, said the Mail on Sunday.
