As forecast, we have seen some very wintry weather over the last few days. Here are some figures showing where the most snow has fallen.

Many areas also saw strong winds, with a gust of 61 mph recorded at Shap, Cumbria and 48 mph recorded at Machrihanish, Argyll . These winds have caused even deeper drifts of snow in some areas.

I visited the Shap Station this afternoon – snow has drifted off the fields, not sure how accurate your figure is. Have taken a few photos. If there is a contact at the Met office I can email if interested
