Exclusive: Take a bird's eye view of Burnham-On-Sea's snowfall

No-one got a better view of Burnham-On-Sea's snowfall than flying enthusiast Jeff Thomas on Saturday morning (February 7th).

He took these two 'birds eye' photographs of the wintry scenes in a microlight 1,500 feet above the town.

"I had the opportunity to fly over Burnham and Brent Knoll and felt compelled to take some photos of the area covered in snow," he told "It was a great view that's rarely seen."

Whilst the temperatures outside his craft were below zero, Jeff was comfortable because his microlight is covered.
