Blast of Arctic air to send temperatures plummeting across UK over next few days
The Met Office has triggered a cold weather alert warning the public of severe conditions expected over the next few days.
The warning is in place in England between 6pm on Wednesday and 9am on Monday, December 12.
The alert means the cold weather could increase health risks to vulnerable people and it requires social and healthcare services to take action to protect high-risk groups.
The Met Office said air from the Arctic will spread south across the country from late on Wednesday with very cold nights expected as well as frosts.
Wintry showers are also likely in coastal areas bringing risks of icy patches on roads.
