Coldest day for years.
The current cold snap is "saving the worst to last", according to forecasters, as a number of places yesterday recorded some of the coldest daytime temperatures for several years.
Snow, rain and sleet were coming in from the west last night with a second system due to bring more today. Some regions saw the temperature rise no higher than minus 7C (19F) even by 4pm.
One of the first victims of the cold snap was a man in his 40s found dead on the steps of West Bromwich Town Hall. Police fear he may have frozen to death.
