A light flurry was captured of camera in Islington at shortly before 1pm as temperatures dropped to 2C.

The Met Office has forecast that snow is likely to continue to fall across the capital into the early evening.

A yellow weather warning for ice is in place for London. The Met office says ice and small amounts of snow could lead to slippery surfaces in a few places.

Today's wintery weather may not be the only expected appearance of snow this month.

The WX Charts weather map shows that London could see more snow towards the end of the month.
