Meanwhile, 52 per cent of Britons said in the YouGov and VisitScotland poll that they would like to take part in a relaxing activity ruing their break.

"We hit a rough patch but the week we had at La Manga helped us and we needed that team spirit back," the 21-year-old, who is on loan from West Ham, told the Express and Star.
