Aiden McGivern, Met Office forecaster, said: “Through Wednesday night, we are expecting further snow showers for eastern parts of Britain.

“For most places, whether you’ve got the snow or clear skies, temperatures will be well below freezing.

“It will be a bitterly cold start to Thursday and we add in weather fronts coming in from the south on top of the cold air.

“We will see some further snowfall pushing into south east England and then eventually East Anglia and the Midlands associated with this system.

“A further few centimetres could fall in places and combined with strong winds, it’s going to feel bitterly cold.”
