Britain was turned into a winter wonderland after a blanket of snow hit the country overnight.

Snowfall hit the Scottish Highlands and parts of England after temperatures dropped to as low as -10°C.

Icy weather left motorists tackling difficult driving conditions while there were also reports of “thundersnow” in some areas.

The wintry snap has prompted Met Office forecasters to issue a yellow weather warning for snow and ice in Scotland and the east of England from Friday until Saturday afternoon.

The Met Office warned of heavy rain and sleet that could lead to tricky travel due to surface water and “possible slushy accumulations”.

It added: "In a few places 1-2cm of snow could accumulate, mainly on grassy surfaces over the North Downs and Chilterns".
