The freezing conditions have forced a number of postponements to the weekend sporting programme, with the Football League and racing worst affected.

More than half the matches in League One and Two fell victim to the weather, with six matches in League One called off and eight in League Two a day before they were due to take place.

The clashes at Bury, Crawley, Crewe, Hartlepool, Scunthorpe, Accrington, Barnet, Port Vale, Rochdale and Southend were all postponed due to frozen pitches. A waterlogged pitch did for Torquay's match against Chesterfield, snow scuppered Bristol Rovers, while travel safety considerations forced the postponement of the matches between Oxford and Rotherham and Yeovil and Preston.
