Roads across the Pennines were blocked as snow continued to fall and several train services cancelled. The Snake and Woodhead passes were blocked.
Northern Ireland had its heaviest snow of the year. Some flights were delayed and ferries to Scotland suspended. A number of schools had to close.
In Cumbria some towns were almost cut off, with drifts several feet deep. The A590 was blocked.
