It has been one of the coldest Decembers for decades and now forecasters say a white Christmas is definitely going to happen this year.

Arctic winds are expected to bring more freezing weather from Thursday with some areas of the country seeing up to eight inches of snow.

And looking further into the future, it looks like most of the country will be swathed in the white stuff on December 25.

Jonathan Powell, a forecaster with Positive Weather Solutions, said: "Our models are showing we will see a white Christmas.

"The most likely places to have one are Scotland, north-east England, the east coast, the South East and London. It's going to happen."

Severe weather warnings have been issued as the second Big Freeze of the season puts the country on course for a winter even colder than the notoriously treacherous 1962-63.
