Southern England was gripped by conditions chillier than parts of Iceland and Greenland as temperatures fell close to -12C (10.4F) on Tuesday night.

In Dorset, the sub-zero temperatures froze a half-mile stretch along the shoreline of Sandbanks, home to Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp.

Locals said it was the first time in decades the sea had partially frozen, but sea off the South Coast is known to have iced over in 1991.

Across the country, families ignored safety warnings and took to frozen flooded fields and lakes on ice skates.
