Weather in pictures: Snow starts to settle in UK as German city faces travel chaos

UK

A fresh amber snow warning is in place for parts of the North West region of England as the UK’s frosty start to December continues.

The warning covers the coastal area of west Cumbria, and central and western parts of the Lake District and falls within a wider area already covered by a yellow warning stretching from Lancaster to the Scottish coast south of Dumfries.
