Heavy snow over the past 48 hours has seen Weston-super-Mare and the wider area get covered – and has led to a number of fantastic photo opportunities.

Photographers have been out and about capturing stunning snowy sites and people enjoying the cold temperatures.

Uphill provided a truly wonderful vantage point to see the landscape covered in white.

Elsewhere there was plenty of fun to have down on the seafront, with the snow covering the beach.

But it was Weston’s parks which were the most popular place to visit.

Castle Batch in Worle and Ashcombe Park were great spots to build a snowman, have a snowball fight or go sledging.

The mini beast From The East saw about four inches of snow fall yesterday (Sunday) morning in areas such as Cleeve.

BBC weather presenter Ian Fergusson took a number of pictures showing the difficult conditions on the A370.

Wildlife have also been affected with plants such as daffodils more accustomed to spring sunshine in late-March than snow.

Mike Jerrett’s walk around Worle yesterday showed the hardy plants were battling against the elements to survive.
