Skiing to work and snowball fights - scenes from the UK


Commuters are experiencing travel disruption as heavy snow falls across much of the UK, with south-east and east England worst affected.

The Met Office has also issued severe snow warnings for London, the East Midlands and Yorkshire and Humber.

Up to 20cm (8in) has already fallen in counties including Kent, Essex and Sussex and more is to come.

About 200 drivers on the M20 and M2 in Kent were stuck in tailbacks overnight and flights have also been cancelled.

Meanwhile, Lara the English springer spaniel was one of many enjoying the snowfall.
