In Pictures: Snow creates winter wonderland for some but floods hit travel plans

A cold snap will see snow and ice continue to cause disruption in parts of the UK over the coming days, the Met Office has warned.

It comes after wintry conditions moved in from the Arctic over the weekend, with people in areas such as Hexham, Northumberland, waking up to settled snow.

While the snow may have presented a picture postcard scene for some, others were dealing with flooded roads following days of heavy rain.
