Snow sweeps into Burnham-On-Sea - Full Photo Round-Up

Snow falls on Burnham-On-Sea seafront on Thursday December 29th as a car travels carefully along the icy road.

Burnham-On-Sea got its heaviest fall of snow for several years on Thursday afternoon, December 29th, when the town was blanketed with a covering of the white stuff.

Several hours of wintry weather left the town under 2cm of snow - and even the beach turned white.

Police warned motorists to only drive if necessary, with all roads in the town reported to have been affected. "People should take a great deal of care when travelling," said a police spokesman.

Shops in Burnham's High Street were particularly quiet during the afternoon as shoppers stayed at home, while Burnham-On-Sea's Webcam was considerably busier than normal with thousands of visitors watching the wintry scenes.

More snow fell during the evening and this was followed by sleet and rain as milder weather arrived. By the following morning all the snow had melted away.
