Amid the doom and gloom of yet another UK lockdown, a winter wonderland created by a blanket of snow was exactly what was needed to bring a little joy to our lives.

Several inches of fresh powder fell on Saturday morning, making it simple for families to decide how to spend their exercise time.

Snowballs were thrown, snowmen and snow angels were created and, just for an afternoon, all the worry in the world was forgotten.

We asked you to send us your best photos of the snow where you are, and we were inundated with dozens of your magical memories.
