Photos: Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge see icy start to December

Residents in the Burnham-On-Sea area faced a bracing start to December this week with sub-zero temperatures and freezing fog.

Temperatures on Thursday (December 1st) plummeted to -4.9°C at 5am and did not rise higher than -0.2°C all day, according to a weather station in Brent Knoll. On Wednesday it was even colder when a temperature of -5.7°C was recorded.

The frosty weather created some stunning scenes, as pictured here at Apex Park in Highbridge and at Burnham-On-Sea's Marine Cove gardens.

The weather is forecast to be slightly milder over the coming days before another cold snap next week. It's the coldest start to winter since 2010 when the Burnham area saw heavy snowfall.
