Big Freeze Bites As Weekend Snow Clears

18 January 2016, 07:15

Freezing temperatures will continue to grip the UK as the snowy cover of the weekend begins to clear.

Clear skies and dry weather will ensure that the east of the country will continue feeling the winter bite even after most of the snow has melted.

Despite the departure of the snow, forecasters say ice in the North could make travelling more difficult than usual.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for large sections of southern Scotland. It also issued snow warnings for the Strathclyde and the central, Tayside and Fife area.

It follows a white winter weekend which saw large swathes of the country covered in snow.

Images from around the UK showed snowmen being built and sledges being manned as people made the most of the weather.
