The frozen River Lagan, Belfast 2010

The severe weather conditions, since before Christmas 2009, have caused the River Lagan, in Belfast, to freeze over. This is next to unheard of and is due, not just to the cold weather but (possibly) the reduced salinity of the river (downstream of the Stranmillis weir), as a side effect of the Lagan Weir at the Queen Elizabeth Bridge. In some places, a frost has settled on the frozen surface.
