Also enjoying the snow was Megan Aitken, a fine artist from Norwich, who had a great time building a snow bear.

The 26-year-old said: “When I woke up and saw the snow, my childish side came out and I thought what better way to spend my day! I built a polar bear which took me about three hours by which time, I was almost frozen so had to stop.

“I think it is important for adults to remember how to be young and play outside once in a while. It definitely keeps me feeling youthful which makes life more fun!”
