As snow continues to fall across South Norfolk and parts of Suffolk, families are gearing up for another snow day.  

Freezing temperatures and snow brought by Storm Darcy saw the region covered in a white blanket on Monday, February 8, and more is predicated will fall over the next few days. 

But the weather seems to have brought some much-needed fun during lockdown, which has been captured in photographs across the county.

She said: "This snow woman is actually here on holiday from ‘The North’.
