Temperatures have dipped dramatically this week and today the mercury will struggle to get above 5C in Sheffield.

Tomorrow could be even colder with the temperature reaching just 3C.

Sheffield City Council have apolgised for the heating system failure and say they are working on a long-term solution.

A spokesperson said: "We have installed some temporary heaters in the market as the heating system has failed.

"We are sorry it has been cold and we will be adding more heaters today, and are working on a longer-term solution as the main heating system is unable to be repaired.”
