A blanket of snow covered most of Huddersfield and Calderdale this morning, giving some spectacular scenery but also causing problems for motorists and pedestrians.
Several centimetres of snow fell across Huddersfield last night and with the skies then clearing temperatures plummeted, leaving many areas treacherously icy.
Police came to the rescue after finding a nurse was struggling to get along Cowlersley Lane in Cowlersley last night due to the snow.
Officers in a Land Rover pushed her car to the side of the road and gave her a lift to her home near Colne Valley High School.
The light snow saw about 4cms fall across most of Kirklees, leading to some breathtaking views this morning.
Much of the country saw similar scenes with a 100-mile wide corridor of snow stretching from north-west Scotland to south-east England. Some parts of Yorkshire had snow up to 5cm deep.
The Met Office said the corridor of snow swept down from Scotland, through the Pennines and Cumbria, the Midlands and across London and West Sussex.
The most snow seen in the south was 2cm in High Wycombe, while on higher ground near the Pennines as much as 15cm of snow fell.
Travellers were warned to expect icy roads, with motorists urged to take care throughout the day.
In Huddersfield, the weather is set to stay cold for the next few days, with the possibility of some more snow but also sparkling sunshine and clear skies at times.
