New snowfall covers Burnham-On-Sea's streets

These were the scenes in the centre of Burnham-On-Sea late on Thursday night (February 5th) as fresh snowfall covered roads and pavements in the town.

The flurries began at 10.30pm and by midnight there was already three centimetres of snow covering streets in Burnham, as pictured here, with more still falling.

A severe weather warning was issued by the Met Office for the south west region on Thursday evening, alerting residents to the possibility of heavy snow.

"Outbreaks of snow, heavy at times, will fall during Thursday night and into Friday morning, giving significant accumulations in places," said a Met Office spokesman.

"Between 5 and 10 cm are expected and up to 20-30 cm is possible on higher ground."
