The Met Office said that the coldest place in the country was Aboyne in Aberdeenshire, where the temperature dropped to -10.5c (13f).
According to the Met Office forecaster Byron Chalcraft warned that ‘ the cold weather this October is on its way. Temperatures will dip to freezing, maybe a couple of degrees under due to cold north-west winds . This will mainly affect northern and western parts of the country, Manchester in particular. ‘It could be enough for snow to settle in some parts, maybe a few centimetres, which would be the first snow of the year.’
We have had a touch of frost this September, and Gritting.com staff are ready to cover your personnel and your property.
