Brr-itain is swept by Arctic blast.

Byline: By TOM LATCHEM

MAKE the most of the unseasonal sunshine - Britain is about to be gripped by a big FREEZE.

Temperatures plunged well below zero all over the country last night with figures as low as minus 9degC (16degF) in the Pennines and Welsh Borders.

Today will be dry and bright again before temperatures turn Arctic tonight - with even London at minus 6degC (21degF).

A Met Office spokesman warned: "There won't be any let-up."

Experts say this month could now be one of the coldest Februarys in a decade despite the recent mild spell.

FLOOD-stricken Hull won an interim pounds 1.8million from the Government yesterday for repairs after last summer's devastation.
