After Storm Bella, parts of the UK are covered in beautiful snow – and there’s more to come

More winter snow is set to fall across the UK as the Met Office issues warnings across the country hours after Storm Bella ravaged much of the country.

Parts of the UK were already blanketed on Sunday after Bella brought high winds and heavy rain overnight on Boxing Day.

The Met Office issued yellow weather warnings for ice and snow across Scotland, northern England, Northern Ireland and parts of north Wales.

The warnings come into effect at 3pm on Sunday and are due to remain in place until 6pm on Monday, with a band of rain, sleet and up to two inches of snow set to fall.

Snow and sleet is a possibility in Scotland from Sunday morning, and will move south throughout the day, bringing the risk of ice and bad driving conditions.
