St Albans and Harpenden woke up to find the world turned into a winter wonderland this morning, with overnight snowfall blanketing the district.

Hailed as a second Beast from the East in some national newspapers, this area saw little covering compared to other parts of Britain - for example, the temperature in Scotland plummeted to its lowest in seven years.

However, many schools in the district have closed due to treacherous travelling conditions and the Met Office forecast continued flurries throughout the day.

It has also issued a yellow ice warning for the South East, with particularly slippy conditions expected between 1pm today and 11am tomorrow.
