Further south, areas including Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, escaped the snowfall but experienced rain fall and very cold temperatures instead.

The showers hitting sub-zero road surfaces will have resulted icy conditions for drivers, a weather expert said.

It comes just days after severe flooding hit Britain, from which many areas are still recovering.
