East Midlands Airport and scores of schools were closed as overnight snow caused problems in Nottinghamshire.

Up to 5cm (2in) of snow fell on Sunday night and around 200 schools across the region have shut.

Nottinghamshire County Council said gritters had been out all night but warned drivers that some untreated side roads remained icy and hazardous.

Flights at East Midlands Airport resumed at 14:05 GMT after poor conditions closed the runway on Monday.

Passengers have been advised to check with their airline for updates.

An airport spokeswoman said flights had to be suspended from landing or taking off while snow was cleared and checks were carried out.

Nottinghamshire Police warned people to be wary of anyone offering to clear their drive of snow, following a series of distraction burglaries.

At the weekend, two men stole money from an elderly woman in Kirkby-in-Ashfield after they moved snow from her driveway.

The force said it was a despicable crime and are keen to catch the culprits.

People using public transport have been advised to check with operators about delays before travelling.
