HEAVY snow may have brought chaos to North Somerset's roads, schools and businesses – but it's brought out the artistic side in a lot of Mercury readers.

Jean Cooper of Dunster Crescent created a snow sculpture that was out of this world.

HEAVY snow may have brought chaos to North Somerset's roads, schools and businesses - but it's brought out the artistic side in a lot of Mercury readers.

We've been inundated with hundreds of pictures from all across the district as people make the most of the unusual weather conditions.

Our picture gallery - which can be viewed in full by clicking the link below - is jam-packed with stunning scenic pictures from all across the district.

But there have also been plenty of unusual offerings capturing some imaginative and ingenious snow creations.

John Christopher of Milton Road sent in a picture of his daughter Andrea's stunning creation.

Aliens, horses, dogs, cats, people and more have been created out of snow as people look to enjoy some fun amid the chaos.

Here the Mercury news team has identified a few favourites from among the clever creations - but remember you can view more by clicking below, and send us your own pictures by emailing newsdesk@westonmercury.co.uk.
