A blanket of snow has covered parts of the UK as the country reels from a spate of unseasonably cold weather.

Hilly areas in the Pennines and Scotland suffered some of the worst conditions, receiving a mixture of sleet and snow.

Snow also fell overnight on higher ground in north Wales, Dartmoor and Exmoor - while around 5cm (2in) is estimated to have settled in the hamlet of Anchor, on the Shropshire-Wales border.
