A week of 'bitterly cold' weather has been forecast for East Anglia.

Temperatures are set to plummet over the weekend and remain chilly throughout next week as cold air from the continent, which is being described as 'the best from the east' hits the UK.

Forecasters believe that temperatures will be below freezing during the day, with a potential peak of 3C at the coast.

Night time temperatures could drop as low as -4C.

Experts from Norwich-based Weatherquest said: 'The cold weather will begin on Sunday and continue until the next weekend, when things should start to get milder again.
