HOSPITALS are on standby for a busy few days as the start of the new year brings plummeting temperatures.
Revellers planning a night out to see in the New Year this evening will have to contend with freezing temperatures as they make their way home in the early hours.
The Met Office has said the chilly conditions seen over the past few days are set to continue into the weekend, meaning a chilly start to 2009.
