Social media has been awash not just with beautiful pictures of the Capital covered in snow, but videos of stuck cars and buses as well as a fantastic array of snowmen.

The Met Office has had a yellow weather warning in place for the first half of the week and will remain in place until Saturday as more snow and ice is predicted.
