Green Park and Hyde Park in the snow
Stomping through two snow-covered central London parks

It's already proving to be one of the coldest winters on record in London, with the capital cloaked in snow and temperatures staying below zero all day.
Brixton has been covered in snow for days - we attended a demo in a raging blizzard - and the parks are already as frozen as they were last year.
Here's some photos from my walk through Green Park and Hyde Park.

A pleasantly understated snowman.
Now, this is one cool snowman!
Things head up in the frozen park!
Heading towards Hyde Park.
Into Hyde Park, which was hosting 'Winter Wonderland' again - see the pics from 2009 here.
The wobbly and thoroughly unconvincing Santa was back in full guffawing, drunkenly lurching action.
Not quite sure what the connection with Christmas is here...
Mulled wine, served from a building that looks like a, err, lighthouse.
Balloons and a wheel.
The 66m high Power Tower was back. It must have been freezing up there.
The Big Wheel.
The Serpentine was frozen solid again.
I don't think Peter Pan 2 will be going anywhere for a while.
A kind soul feeds the hungry geese.
