Britain remained in the grip of the coldest winter for more than 30 years today, with conditions set to feel even more icy in the coming days.
Temperatures were already on a par with the South Pole after the country suffered its coldest night of the winter so far.
There will be little respite, with more snow in eastern England today and temperatures likely to be pegged at or below freezing in all areas.
Over the weekend an easterly wind will move from the south of England across the country, bringing with it a biting chill factor as the coldest spell for more than three decades grinds on.
The mercury sank to minus 22.3C (8.1F) in Altnaharra in Scotland this morning – close to the minus 22.9C (minus 9.2F) currently at the southernmost part of the globe.
