Some homes in the North East and Yorkshire are still without power as parts of Britain woke up to freezing temperatures.

Around 90,000 homes across northern England suffered power cuts since the bad weather arrived on Tuesday afternoon.

Between six and eight inches of snow fell in high parts of the Peak District, Pennines and Cumbria overnight.
