March weather was second coldest on record - Met Office

Freezing temperatures in March made it the UK's joint second coldest since records began more than 100 years ago, the Met Office has said.

The mean temperature was just 2.2C (36F) - more than 3C colder than the long-term monthly average.

The BBC's Ed Thomas reports from Saddleworth Moor in the Pennines where the snow is still lying thick on the ground.
