Heavy snow brought much of the UK to a standstill with widespread travel disruption and scores of school closures, but some were able to make the most of a rare snow day.
One man seized the opportunity to get outside in the fresh powder and snowboard down Norwich‘s steepest hill.
Willie Steil shared the clip on Twitter, showing the snowboarder glide along Gas Hill – a 300-metre stretch – as snow showers continued to fall on the winter wonderland.
The region recorded as much as 25cm of snow in parts after the “Beast from the East” swept through the area.
And it provided the perfect conditions for keen snowsports enthusiasts.
Mr Steil said later he had attempted the run and fallen over twice en route.
