A vicious cold front from the depths of icy Russia will send temperatures across the UK plummeting this week - and Wednesday is set to be the coldest day of the year so far.
Temperatures will plunge as low as -8C in some rural areas, bringing freezing rain, sleet and snow, as the freezing 7,000-mile wide 'Beast from the East' sweeps the UK from Monday.
The extreme cold is set to bring travel chaos to the nation and the Met Office says Wednesday will bring sub-zero temperatures across the whole of the UK.
