Islington and Hackney were blanketed in a layer of snow this weekend. 

On Sunday (January 24) at around 10.30am, flurries of snow started to fall and settle across London and the South East, including in Islington and Hackney. 

Many residents used their once-daily exercise walk - permitted under the third national lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic  - to enjoy the wintery conditions.

This comes as temperatures plummet in the wake of Storm Christoph, and alongside yellow weather warnings issued for the south-east by the Met Office. 

A yellow warning of ice remains in place for much of England.
