Breaking News: The sun is shining in West Dunbartonshire and Argyll this morning, but the National Grid ESO has fired up its emergency coal stations as the coldest night of the year so far looms on the UK.
A warning has been issued by the grid as the cold spell this evening could mean more energy is needed to keep Britain’s lights on.
The lowest temperature recorded so far this year is -10.4C in Scotland. However, the mercury could drop to -15C in some sheltered Scottish glens.
