'Beautiful but bitterly cold' weather

Wintry weather will grip parts of the UK for weeks to come as snow spreads eastwards, forecasters have warned.

Travel plans were disrupted for many people as 40cms (16in) fell in parts of north-east England and Scotland on Saturday - with more to come on Sunday.

It was said to be the most widespread snow at this time of year since 1993.
