SWIMMERS are being warned of chilly temperatures and slippery surfaces at Clevedon Marine Lake.

The temperature of the lake, a popular spot for those wanting to take a dip, is just over 2°C.

The air temperature is even colder, meaning that, if you are planning on taking a swim, you must be prepared for it to be extremely cold.

Ice has also formed at the water entry and exit points. Residents are reminded to take care when walking around the lake.

A spokesperson for Clevedon Marine Lake said: "The lake is now barely over 2°C and with even colder air temperatures and windchill, if you dip or swim, you really do need to make sure you are properly prepared and understand the risks.

"We have also been warned it is icy underfoot, particularly at the water entry and exits, so do take extra care!"
