Relief Channel freezes bank to bank

CHILL: The Relief Channel ices over

It's been a while since a cold snap like this descended on the Fens. The Relief Channel was still frozen from bank to bank yesterday afternoon.

The Middle Level and all the land drains were also sheets of ice. Skaters were on the Welney Washes yesterday afternoon.

There were also sheets of ice coming down the tidal Ouse, as temperatures refused to budge above the freezing mark.

Weathermen say things might improve slightly from Thursday onwards. But the Met Office is warning there's more snow on the way today.
