Londoners were left delighted by the first snowfall of the winter as light flurries fell in the capital.
Parts of central London including Holborn and Lothbury saw light snowfall at around 11am on Thursday.
Snow also fell in parts of south-east London including Beckenham and Blackheath.
Met Office forecaster Helen Roberts had earlier said it was "not impossible" for sleet and snow to reach parts of London but added: "It would be fleeting and it would not settle." ❄️⛄️☃️ •
