The Beast from the East has taken Northern Ireland by storm (excuse the pun).

Winter wardrobes continued to be a better option on Friday with temperatures not expecting to rise above 1C, but that hasn't stopped the public from having fun.

Local man, John Finlay slept in an igloo built by his family and neighbours. The Portadown man braved the icy conditions to raise money for Robert Cuthbert, the African director for Ambassadors Football, from his church, First Portadown Presbyterian.

The total amount raised is currently £1200 on their justgiving page. If you would like to donate click here.

As seen on Twitter and Facebook, plenty of other people are certainly taking advantage of the snowy conditions
