Runners and dog walkers were not deterred by the light snowfall at Whitley Bay on the North East coast.

Elsewhere, it was a chilly start for many, with temperatures ranging from a high of 5C in the South West to freezing in Scotland.

The Met Office tweeted: “A cold and frosty start for many with sunshine and a few wintry showers.”

There are no weather warnings in place for Monday, when non-essential retail and outdoor hospitality are due to reopen for the first time in months as the lockdown is eased in England.
