It may be a few days after Christmas but the white stuff is finally here.

The UK has been covered in a thick blanket of snow.

Pictures from northern England and Scotland showed areas buried this morning.

The heaviest snowfall of 5cm-10cm was expected in parts of northern England and up to 15cm over higher ground.

But you should be careful not to have too much fun after officials issued an amber warning of snow in West Yorkshire, the South Pennines and places such as Rochdale and Burnley.

A wider yellow warning for snow has also been made for southern and eastern Scotland, northern England and the Midlands until 3pm.

There’s also more potential trouble headed or way in terms of weather.

The south coast was lashed by torrential downpours, lightning and strong winds and forecasters warned of disruption to travel and potential power outages today because of severe weather.

This has led the Met Office to issue a yellow warning for strong winds expected over parts of south-west England and southern Wales.

Highways England also issued a severe weather warning and advised people to plan their journeys before they set out.
