Ice trick: Images of Matthew performing the stunt

A youth worker from Northern Ireland who lives in Scotland has told how he threw a cup of boiling water into mid-air - and saw it transform into ice crystals.

Matthew Hamilton (22), who recently moved to Aberdeen with his wife Rebecca, said he had been "absolutely freezing" for the past week in the cold snap - which has seen temperatures plummet to their lowest level in years.

He decided to try out the stunt, in which people throw water in the air and it freezes instantly if it is cold enough, on Wednesday, when the mercury was as low as minus 10C.
