The new year has brought with it a variation of weather conditions across the UK.

On Wednesday 17th January, the Met Office said parts of northern England and southern Scotland could expect snow, predicting 3 to 8cm in some places. “Over higher ground, as much as 20cm” was predicted. Drivers in the area have been encouraged to proceed with “extreme caution”, and avoid driving where possible. All schools in the Scottish Border are closed today (Thursday 18th), according to the BBC.

Here are a selection of pictures of where the snow hit the hardest. Despite its inconvenience for some, it isn’t half beautiful…
