Plummeting temperatures overnight resulted in the coldest night of the year being recorded in Wales, with just two more days of 2014 left to run.

Pembrey in Carmarthenshire saw the mercury drop to -6.7C, with similar lows parts of Ceredigion and Powys.

The cold snap is not expected to last as highs of 12C are predicted in Cardiff on New Year's Day.

The clear skies and sunshine have produced some beautiful winter scenes, as walkers round the country recorded.
