Since October, councils have vowed to offer the public places to go to keep warm in the face of rising energy bills as fears over the cost of living crisis saw many pledge to not turn their heating on this winter.

Now, facing an impending cold snap - with the Met Office issuing a cold weather alert and temperatures in the county set to dip to minus 4C, we've put together a list of places across the county you can go to keep warm, catch up with friends, and find out what kind of support is on offer.

A list of warm hubs in Telford & Wrekin is available on the council's Live Well website.
