The first flakes started landing yesterday, but didn't settle on the ground until late afternoon.

A Met Office weather warning for snow is in place all day, and runs until 2pm on Friday.

The snow has caused disruption in the region, with some schools closing and a number of bus routes being diverted.

Attractions such as Dudley Zoo and the Black Country Living Museum are also closed today.
