Weather warning: Hundreds of schools to close after heavy snow

Snow depth on Sunday UK weather forecast

The "Mini Beast from the East" has brought snow back to south London a few short weeks since the major disruption caused by the first "beast".

The warning read: "Ice on roads, pavements and cycle paths is likely either where melted snow refreezes or where further wintry showers occur, these mainly in the east of England and Scotland".

Up to 10cm (4in) of snow is expected in many areas, but high ground could see 15-25cm (6-10in).

An amber weather warning for snow and ice was put in place across north-west England, Yorkshire and the Midlands, as well as London, the south-east, and the east of England, while a less severe yellow warning for snow and ice was issued for most of the rest of the country.

Travel delays on roads are likely, stranding some vehicles and passengers.
