Heavy snow has caused disruption across parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England.

Leon Brown, a meteorologist at Weather Channel UK, said: "This colder spell of weather looks like it will be with us until at least the end of next week. In fact, next week looks a lot colder than the next few days with a wider snow risk, and we may see some severe frosts, even over central and southern Britain by the middle of next week."

Not everyone was unhappy about the snow, as shown by these lovely photos taken around Belfast by Getty Images photographer Charles McQuillan.
