Storm Arwen: Parts of UK battered by fierce winds and covered with snow.

PARTS of the United Kingdom have been covered with inches of snow today, after Storm Arwen battered parts of England and Scotland on Sunday, leaving wreckages in it's wake.

Snow has blanketed much of Britain as the icy plunge takes hold.

The freezing conditions could last until January - meaning a rare white Christmas is on the cards.

James Madden of Exacta Weather told The Mirror: "Snow on Christmas day is more likely in the north of the country."

But he added: "We can't rule out festive snow anywhere."

The "cold and frosty" weather is forecast to stick around - for up to two more weeks.

Scotland and the north bore the brunt of the chilly snap yesterday, but across the South East frost is forecast throughout tonight and early this morning.

And the Met Office has two yellow warnings for ice currently in place.
