Early snowfall in East Yorkshire and Suffolk has made 2020 a White Christmas for parts of the UK.
The Met Office reported snow on the ground at 5am on Christmas Day in Leconfield, East Yorkshire and Wattisham in Suffolk.
It tweeted: “Morning everyone, we’ve just had official confirmation that this #Christmas is a white one!
“Leconfield in Humberside reported #snow falling at 5am, and Wattisham in Suffolk also reported recent snow at this time. Further updates will be issued as they become available.”
There was also snow in northeast England and over the mountains of the Scottish Highlands on Christmas Eve.Advertisement
Forecasters say Christmas Day is likely to be clear and dry for most, but showers in eastern parts of England have the potential to bring sleet or snow this morning.
It comes amid widespread flooding around the country with people rescued from vehicles and evacuated from their homes following a period of heavy rain.
