Britain has been gripped by a cold snap that is turning December into one of the coldest on record.

The lake at  St. James’s Park – a 23 hectare (58 acre) park in Westminster – has been frozen over for many days (although there were a few small areas of exposed  water), so I grabbed a few shots.

St. James’s Park Lake has two small islands, known as Duck Island (named after  the lake’s collection of waterfowl), and West Island.
