Milder temperatures have brought some respite from the freezing conditions over Christmas and New Year, as this sunny scene captured by Andrew Roe in Richmond Park shows - but the cold weather meant Sheffield just missed out on its hottest-ever year.

The cold snap meant the city missed the record by just 0.04C.

Sheffield’s average temperature for 2014 fell just below 2011’s record of 10.98C, according to Museums Sheffield’s weather station at Weston Park.
