12 of the best pictures as snow fell across the North-East

THERE were picture pefect scenes across much of the North-East today as the white stuff fell in the early hours of the morning.

Parts of County Durham, Darlington and North Yorkshire were pictured as a blanket of snow covered cars, pavements and the region’s roads.

Following on from a yellow, then amber, weather warning for parts of the region, some areas saw between ten and 15cm of snow fall in just a few hours.
