Britons are bracing for another chilly week ahead, as Autumn comes to its coldest end for six years with temperatures plummeting as low as -10C.

The coldest November night since 2010 was recorded last night, with the mercury falling to a bitingly cold -9.7C in Sennybridge, Wales.

The country will see a similarly cold night tonight, with temperatures likely to fall to -7C to -8C in the south.

Met Office forecaster Luke Miall said that sub-zero temperatures can be expected moving into next week, with the mercury dropping as low as -4C on Sunday night and -6C on Monday night.

There will be some respite from Thursday through to Saturday – although night-time temperatures will remain at around zero degrees.
