Former footballer Michael Owen's luxury car has been crushed under a tree.

Owen discovered his £150,000 Bentley GT Continental had been buried after heavy downfall of snow overnight.

The ex-England player, who lives in Flintshire, said he had been trying to shelter his car from the snow, but it did not go to plan.

Some fans were sympathetic.

But others seemed surprised the former Liverpool and Manchester United striker does not keep his car in a garage.

Ice and snow have caused problems on the roads across north Wales this past weekend.

There is still widespread frost, ice and light snow across the Flintshire area.
