Pensioners, who are among those most ­vulnerable to the cold, are resorting to ­extraordinary measures to keep warm.

Many have been using their free travel ­passes to spend the day riding on buses while others are seeking refuge from the cold in libraries and shopping centres.

  • Hmmm.

    Sounds a lot like what people without adequate shelter do here when it gets cold except here they don't get free day passes for the bus. Instead, they use thier ovens to heat thier homes and just hope they don't explode.
