Spring has been postponed as the "beast from the east" brings the United Kingdom its coldest end to winter in five years, the Met Office has said.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways and Transport at Lincolnshire County Council, said: "During the day, temperatures will struggle to rise above 0 and in the wind will feel like -4 or -5".

"And there will be snow, especially into eastern parts of the United Kingdom but it's possible just about anywhere".

There are a number of ways you can be alerted to severe weather warnings in the UK.

And with the mercury plummeting at a rate of knots the bookies now make it just a 1/2 chance that the United Kingdom is colder than Iceland over the next week.

Road salting and gritting operations will resume next week in light of the dramatic change in forecast weather conditions.
