We’re always hoping for a white Christmas – but it looks like a white Halloween could well be on the cards this year.

“We better make the most of any balmy temperatures because the end of October looks set to be a big freeze, so much so that we make it odds on for snow to fall this month in the UK,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

“We make it a 2-1 chance that this winter goes into the record books as the coldest the UK has ever had.”
