Sub-zero temperatures left Burnham-On-Sea shivering on Thursday December 29th as the town got its first proper taste of winter.

A bank of ice at the tide line on Burnham-On-Sea Beach on December 29thOvernight, temperatures in the town sank to their lowest of the year at -7°c.

And even by lunchtime the thermometer had not risen above a teeth-chattering -2°c.

A bank of ice was left at the top of the tide line on Burnham-On-Sea beach, pictured right, and pools of ice formed in many spots.

Elsewhere in the town, Apex Leisure Park's lakes were frozen over - making the going difficult for birds as they slipped and slided their way across a thick layer of ice.

Police warned motorists to drive with extra care along roads in the area. And weather forecasters were predicting sleet and snow for later in the day.
