This alert level indicates that the cold weather we are currently experiencing has the potential to put people at risk, although it is those who are older and those with pre-existing health conditions that are most likely to experience significant impacts as a result of the current low temperatures. Please take care during this cold spell and check in on friends, family and neighbours who may be most vulnerable.

Helpful information and advice on keeping warm and well in cold weather can be found on the GOV.UK website
