Weather forecasters say that snow could fall across most of the UK by the weekend as the cold snap continues to bring freezing temperatures to many areas.
Eastern areas bore the brunt of the snowfall today with 42 schools closing in Norfolk, the closure of Norwich International Airport and a six-vehicle pile-up on the A11 leaving three people injured.
The Met Office recorded snow depth of 8cm in Norfolk and Suffolk this morning, while the lowest temperature recorded overnight was -5.7C at Altnaharra, located in the Scottish Highlands.
When Norwich came to a standstill after a heavy snow shower around lunch time, people gathered in the streets to help those in trouble. No vehicles were immune from the hazards, with a police van, a bus and even a hearse sliding on the ice.
Police in County Durham have been accused of "sucking the fun from everything" after warning people they could be arrested for throwing snowballs.
The Crook Neighbourhood Police Team wrote on its Facebook page, "If anyone is caught throwing snowballs at vehicles or onto the road ... or at any people who do not want to be involved in the snow games they could be arrested".
They went on to say it would be classed as anti-social behaviour.
The centre of Norwich ground to a halt this lunchtime, as a heavy snow shower caused problems for drivers. These pictures were shot in the Market Avenue area of the city near Castle Mall.
The RAC said they are expecting 16 percent more breakdowns today than the 7,500 they would normally expect on a Tuesday in winter.
If they are correct, the number of breakdowns could reach 9,000 by the end of the day.
An RAF spokesman said the busiest area was East Anglia.
