Met Office warns of further snow in Northern Ireland

There was heavy snowfall across many parts of Northern Ireland on Sunday

There was heavy snowfall across many parts of Northern Ireland on Sunday with the north and north-west particularly badly affected.

The runways at Belfast International Airport have now re-opened after two inches of snow were cleared by teams of workers.

However, there are severe delays to flights and passengers are being asked to check airline websites for updates.

The Met Office has warned of more heavy snow showers later on Sunday.

The Rathlin ferry was also cancelled on Sunday morning.

Bea Tucker from the Met Office said: "There will be further wintry showers as we move through the afternoon, some of which will be snow. We could see between five and 10cm by the end of the day."

Police have warned motorists to drive carefully because of poor road conditions in some areas.
