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

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.

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