Never mind de-icer or a windscreen scraper, the first thing the people of England reached for this frosty morning was a camera.

BBC Weather Watchers captured an array of frost-kissed scenes and reported temperatures as low as -5C (23F).

It was a bright but bracing start for most and the result was a stunning selection of images from around the country.
