Forecasters are predicting that the lowest temperature ever recorded in England could be broken this week. They suggest that the record low of -26.1C could be topped as the snow and bad weather caused air and road chaos across the country.
While they say that their prediction is a cautious one, the winter solstice this coming Tuesday is said to increase the chance as the sun is at its lowest point in the sky.

The warning of the record low comes as this winter looks set to be the coldest since records began in 1910.
Temperatures during December have been lower than in the big freeze of 1962 to 1963 when the average temperature during December was 2.2C in Central England.
