    Temperatures plunged to -10C overnight - but worse is to come next week

    If you think -10C sounds horribly cold then you're going to need to brace yourself for what next week's weather has in store. Temperatures last night were the chilliest of the winter so far, plunging to a low of -10.7C (12.7F) in Aboyne, Aberdeenshire. This beats this winter's previous coldest temperature of -10.5C (13.1F), recorded by the Met Office on January 3 in Braemar.

The Met Office said it would be a frosty start for most places while people in eastern parts were warned of the possibility of icy patches. Rain and snow was forecast over some western parts during the morning commute, although snow was mainly expected on high ground. Meteorologist Alex Burkill said: "Winter's here now properly. It feels like winter and the weather's resembling it. "I think in Wales, many places are likely to see some sleet or snow." The weekend is expected to stay cold, with the possibility of more snow early next week. The Met Office told the Evening Standard: "It will be cold with rain and sleet through the weekend, but next week is when there's the potential for disruptive snow, particularly on Monday night into Tuesday and Wednesday night into Thursday." \- This article first appeared on Yahoo ###

    Single and Ready To Mingle: Hugo the Tortoise Has Real Sex Appeal in Steamy Shower Video

    It was designed to cool him down, but hard-shelled bachelor Hugo the tortoise was steamier than ever while taking a cold shower to beat the heat at the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, New South Wales. In this slow-motion video, shared by the park on January 18, the 68-year-old Galapagos tortoise relished a hose-down as the country experienced a heatwave. The cheeky footage was shared by the zoo to get the word out that Hugo is on the prowl for a mate. The zoo’s head of reptiles, Daniel Rumsey said: “We are legitimately looking for the perfect mate for Hugo. We see the slow-mo showering shots work for the real bachelors on TV, so why not give Hugo a go?” Weighing 165kg, Hugo is fully grown, has now reached middle age and is ready to settle down.

    Adventurous family quit the rat race and sell everything to travel around in a converted school bus

    An adventurous family has dropped out of the rat race, selling everything to travel around in a converted school bus. Derek Cobia, 33, and his wife Amy, 32, spent $15,000 renovating the 28ft x 8ft school bus with solar panels, a composting toilet, a working kitchen, wood-burning stove and a bath tub big enough for two people. The couple, originally from Atlanta, Georgia, were inspired then they lived in an RV on a local campsite in 2015 for a year. They decided to renovate the bus and sell up and travelwith three-year-old daughter Payson and their American bulldog Britches. So far they have visited 33 states, living off  Derek’s income as a freelance financial adviser and Amy’s remote part-time administration work. Derek and Amy plan to home school Payson in the coming years, but eventually hope to settle down in Wyoming or Oregon, still living minimally.

    The Grand Tour review, series 3: Jeremy Clarkson delivers wanton destruction in Detroit

    Is there any way of reviewing the new series opener of The Grand Tour without reviewing Jeremy Clarkson? There’s a fair amount of wanton destruction awaiting in the third series of The Grand Tour, but nothing quite so shocking as when Clarkson churns up a bed of neatly cultivated broad beans in his Ford Mustang RTR, one of the “muscle machines” that he is racing around the deserted highways of Detroit with Hammond and May (surnames only, of course) in this opening episode. Motor City is a test-case for everything Clarkson sees as having gone wrong with the world, its automobile factories now crumbling mausoleums that are starting to be colonised by an urban farms initiative (hence the broad bean trashing).

    Germany's Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said a discussion should be held on whether to re-open the draft deal for Britain's planned exit from the European Union, but only if all EU members agreed. Maas told public broadcaster ZDF late on Thursday he had spoken to Britain's foreign minister, adding that it had become clear this week that there was no majority for a no-deal Brexit in the British lower house. Earlier on Thursday, he said it was "hardly imaginable" that the Brexit withdrawal agreement would be reconsidered.

    Hillsborough trial: Stadium's safety officer was 'accountant with no formal training', court told

    A defence lawyer representing former Sheffield Wednesday club secretary Graham Mackrell said standards for the role were “very different” in the 1980s. The lawyer said that health and safty management had “moved on a lot” in the past three decades and Mr Mackrell’s role did not include “what we would currently understand” as the expertise needed. Mr Beer said the government-issued Green Guide made first mention of a “safety officer” in 1986 and there was no formal training course or qualification for the post.
