North Devon had its first proper brush with the white stuff this winter as most people across the area awoke to a covering of snow. 

The Met Office had issued a yellow warning for possible snow in the early hours of Sunday (January 24) and so it proved.

It fell on top of frozen roads following sub-zero temperatures on Saturday night that saw several routes become deadly as they quickly covered with ice.

There were some road collisions but thankfully no serious injuries have been reported. 

With the snowfall, people took to their local area on Sunday morning to get pictures, including these submitted to us by drone operator Nick Harborne – who runs the Nick’s Pix Facebook page – from the East Down area.
