Winter arrives: Brr-itain wakes up to its first frost of the season

After a relatively balmy October, winter seems to be upon us with the first frost of the season biting Britain this morning.

People across the country woke up to a picturesque – and freezing – scene outside their homes after the coldest night since early May.

Tulloch Bridge, in the Scottish Highlands, saw temperatures fall to minus 5C (23F), the coldest recorded since the night of May 8-9, where minus 5.1C (22.8F) was recorded at Shap, Cumbria.

Other parts of the UK also dipped below freezing overnight, marking the coldest night of the season so far.

However, despite the colder temperatures sticking around today, it will largely be bright and sunny.

The rest of the week is also looking milder, with the Met Office predicting average temperatures for this time of year.
