Snowfall and ice have affected parts of Northern Ireland.

Light snow showers fell across all counties on Monday morning.

Belfast City Airport had to divert an inbound flight from Manchester to Belfast International Airport while it de-iced its runway. The runway has since reopened.

A number of schools across Northern Ireland have also been closed for the day.
