The real cost of the the big chill
"Is the big chill going to put Britain's battered economy back into cold storage? Frightening numbers are doing the rounds about the financial impact of what has been the most severe cold snap in years - just as it seemed that the economy was finally heating up after more than a year of gloom.
"The insurer Royal & SunAlliance, for example, has put the cost of the cold at £690m a day, utilising official statistics and data on previous episodes of severe weather. Not only will business productivity fall, the insurer notes, but local vendors will suffer reduced turnover and may even be forced to close for the day due to the lack of trade and staff."
