Parts of the UK woke up to snow on Wednesday morning.

The Met Office had issued a yellow severe weather warning for northern England and southern Scotland, while flurries were also seen down into the Midlands.

Parts of Cumbria, Northumberland and Durham were in the warning area in England, while north of the border it covered parts of Dumfries and Galloway, East and West Lothian, East Ayrshire and South Lanarkshire.
