In pictures: Lincoln enjoying the snow

Cold but fun day for many

Building snowmen, sledging and dog walking are just some of the ways people in Lincoln tried to enjoy the snow on Monday.

A blanket of snow fell in the city during the day before it started to clear up by the afternoon, but the adverse weather conditions could continue for up to three days.

The Met Office’s yellow warning for snow is expected to run until 11.59pm on Wednesday, February 10.

It has already caused difficult driving conditions and Lincolnshire Police said on Monday morning it had already dealt with over 30 collisions and 18 hazards so far on the county’s roads.

The weather also forced over 25 schools in the county to close and this number has now risen to more than 30.
