London was transformed into a beautiful winter wonderland after being blanketed with snow overnight.
The ‘Beast from the East’ brought heavy snow to the capital during the night to leave it looking majestically beautiful.
By the time the sun rose, clear blue skies were over London and the south-east, leaving snow glistening white in the morning sunshine.
And with temperatures staying well below freezing at -2C throughout the morning, the snow stuck around for people to enjoy – and share photos of.
Londoners shared pictures of the city’s iconic landmarks and parks covered in the white stuff as they made their way to work or enjoyed a morning jog or cycle.
Here is a selection of the best photos of London in the snow on Wednesday.
Heavy snow showers are expected to continue later on Wednesday – with the south-east expected to be one of the worst-affected areas.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for more snow today, with more snow still forecast for Thursday and Friday.
