Met Office forecast six inches of snow after blizzards and -10C big freeze

Brits have been hit with a deep freeze that's left temperatures struggling to stay above zero.

The UK has endured -10C in some areas and hit with up to six inches of snow.

The Met Office has issued snow and ice warnings for Monday morning, after families and people flocked to parks to enjoy the white stuff despite calls to remain at home.

Londoners took to the capital's parks in Hampstead Heath, Richmond and Primrose Hill and other beauty spots over the weekend.

Flakes fell across the majority of the UK yesterday, with flurries falling in the east of England and the south.

The Midlands were forecast to see up to six inches of snow by the end of yesterday, and snow is expected to remain on the ground into this week.

However, the wintry weather can lead to travel chaos and power cuts, as well as threatening to cut rural communities off.

Meteorologist Simon Partridge said yesterday: "Temperatures are expected to dip to between minus 4C and minus 6C quite widely tonight.

"Where we get that snow lying in parts of the Midlands, we could see one or two places where temperatures are as low as minus 10C."

Frost is also predicted in areas with light snowfall, as temperatures remain chilly.

On Sunday, Loch Glascarnoch and Wittering saw 18cm of snow settle, according to the weather service.

They also warn that Monday morning will start very cold and crisp.

Frost and freezing rain, or snow falling on cold surfaces could lead to treacherous paths and roads and form ice.

The north west is expected to still see wintry showers over the course of the day.

From mid-week, rain is expected to return following Storm Christoph battering the midlands and northern parts of England last week.

Hundreds of homes were evacuated and houses were left destroyed by increasing flood waters.

The Met Office has issued three yellow weather warnings for snow and ice today, covering most of the UK.

An ice warning is in place for the entirety of the south and up to the north west of the country.

Another alert covers Northern Ireland, and a third is in place for northern and western Scotland, set to last until 11am.
