Much of East Devon was blanketed in snow on Friday morning, creating some beautiful landscapes.

According to the Met Office yesterday’s sleet and snow will become patchier but it will linger for many in the east of the county. It will remain cold all day with a maximum temperature of 5C and strong winds.

A number of East Devon schools have closed today due to the poor conditions.

In the evening the sleet and snow is predicted to ease but icy patches on roads and pavements will continue to cause problems.

Temperatures could drop to -2C overnight with wintry showers moving westward across the county.
