As Europe shivers, Iceland is positively sweltering with temperatures of four degrees celsius in the capital on Wednesday.

The sparsely-populated island is enjoying a spell of unusually mild winter weather after a snowy December and January. Nearly ten degrees celsius was recorded in Reykjavik on Monday!
