West Norfolk woke up to a scattering of snow - but more could follow.

The beast from the east was kept at bay as King’s Lynn and west Norfolk have woken up to a mere dusting of the cold, white stuff, despite a few instances of heavy snowfall throughout the night.

Any remnants of snow are beginning to melt away as temperatures are set to reach 3C (37F) this afternoon, but according to the Met Office forecasters, Norfolk is still active in a yellow weather warning meaning that snow, possibly heavy at times and turning icy, could still be on the cards today.

Children wanting to build a snowman were left disappointed as no schools were closed.

However, with the yellow snow warning still in place, the beast from the east may make a return, daily school closures are updated regularly so visit www.disruptions.norfolk.gov.uk/nccclosures_schools.html
