Wigan Athletic's Premier League football match against Bolton Wanderers, scheduled for this morning, has been postponed because of the big freeze in the UK.

Wigan's ground and pitch are in perfect condition, but the club's private roads and 10 acres of car parks are iced over with temperatures plunging to minus 6 degrees.
