Fresh snow has fallen across many parts of the UK overnight, continuing a week of disruption to schools, airports and traffic networks.
Up to 9cm (3.5in) has already fallen in some of the worst affected areas, including southern England, south-west England, the West Midlands and Wales.
Northern Scotland and northern England also had a further dumping of around 2cm (0.8in).
The snow is expected to ease throughout the day when it will become confined to south Wales and south-west England.
