People in the Lancaster and Morecambe district took full advantage of the Saturday afternoon snowfall to enjoy plenty of fun until the thaw on Sunday evening.

Families and youngsters were out in force on Torrisholme Barrow on Sunday morning building snowmen, having snowball fights and sledging down the hill.

The wintry weather also clearly agreed with Morecambe FC players who notched a crowd-pleasing 2-1 win over Yeovil Town on Saturday as the snow settled on the Globe Arena pitch.
