East Anglia was among the worst hit areas of the country over the weekend but forecasters predict temperatures above freezing this week.

The Great Yarmouth area was covered in several cms of snow, turning the beach into a winter wonderland, but failing to deter dog walkers and the intrepid.

Phil Garner, from Weatherquest, said they had not expected such a heavy snowfall or for it to last as long into the morning as it had. And he warned the sleet and the snow could make a return next weekend as temperatures were due to fall again.
