Your beautiful snowy scenes from across the Midlands

  • Take a look at these wonderful drone pictures from about Sutton:

Snowstorms and high winds are causing travel disruption across swathes of Britain after the coldest March temperature in more than a decade was recorded overnight.

The Met Office has issued three amber warnings for “strong winds bringing blizzard conditions” and up to 16in (40cm) of snow in our region.

For Thursday, forecasters have predicted daytime temperatures in the low single figures and sub-zero temperatures overnight for much of the UK, with slightly warmer conditions in the south.

But those of you who were able to avoid the disruption have been able to send in your lovely photos and videos from today's snow day!

As some schools were closed across the regions, families were able to play in the snow and make a snowman or two.

Like this family in Kings Heath, Birmingham:

Those who live on our canals had a slightly different view from the window... icy sheet on our waters and tops of houseboats covered in the fluffy stuff.

Of course, our pets had a great play in the snow too.

Can you spot the dog among the snowy branches in Great Barr?

These sheep at Herdwicks of Highfields Farm on the edge of the Peak District in Staffordshire had been fed, watered and corned.

Lunar & Raven are enjoying the snow with Snowdrop joining them.

And in Derbyshire where the snow isn't as heavy, these sheep waited patiently for their money biscuits after sub-zero temperatures.

Who doesn't love a donkey?

Some of the herd at The Donkey Sanctuary Birmingham explored their snowy home in Sutton Park today.

The biggest event in the canine calendar, Crufts began at the NEC in Birmingham today.

It's a chance for our beloved canines to showcase their skills and they certainly didn't let the weather deter them from entertaining!
