From epic snowmen to frolicking in the white stuff, Redbridge residents have been busy making the most of the heavy snowfall.

Sunday’s snow has forced 33 schools across the borough to close, but no major weather-related problems have been reported.

Recorder readers have been busy taking pictures of their snowman triumphs and of the scenic landscape.

There have been stories of residents braving the elements, with parishioners coming together on Sunday brooms in hand to clear the snow from the ground at St Peter’s Church in Newbury Park, so the morning service could take place.

If you have your own snowy stories, or pictures you would like to share with us, there are a number of ways to get in touch:
