Parts of the UK woke up to snowfall overnight, as Met Office weather warnings for rain and ice were issued for some areas on Friday.
Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern described early Friday as being an “awkward mixture of cold rain, sleet and falling snow” for many areas.
A yellow weather warning for rain is in place for eastern Scotland, while a yellow warning for ice applies to the East Midlands, West Midlands, parts of Yorkshire and Humber, east of England, London and south-east England.
Here are a selection of photos of Friday’s snowfall.
