England: Just a few inches

Forecasters have warned the biting temperatures, snow showers and overnight frosts could last until the end of February as the country returned to work amid expected school closures.

Parts of the UK woke up to lying snow of up to five inches (14cm) this morning while the coldest temperature of -8.6C (16.5F) was recorded overnight in Church Fenton in North Yorkshire.

Heathrow Airport faced questions last night as to why half of all flights were cancelled hours after it stopped snowing.
