Snowfalls overnight on Monday brought a white Christmas to parts of the region, and some of that snow is still to be seen in scattered patches.

It is expected to be joined by fresh flurries this weekend, and a yellow weather warning for snow tomorrow has been issued by the Met Office.

“A spell of snow is likely across parts of northern England and southern Scotland on Friday morning,” said a Met Office spokesman.
