Top tips to stay warm and well - cold weather warning

With temperatures plunging below freezing residents are being asked to stay well and warm and help keep an eye on friends, family and neighbours who may be vulnerable or elderly.

The Met Office have issues a cold weather warning for the area which means Cambridgeshire could see several days of below freezing weather. In Cambridgeshire alone there are an average of 180 deaths per year linked to cold weather.

Keeping warm in colder temperatures is particularly important for older more frail people, those with ongoing illnesses such as heart and lung conditions and the very young as the cold can affect their health.

Here are six top tips to help keep you warm and safe this winter.
