VIDEO: Snow falls in Leeds as icy blasts roll in

Snow has been spotted in Leeds this morning as temperatures continue to plunge.

While it's not quite a blizzard, Cookridge Golf Club posted this video today of a snow shower at its club, with very visible thick white flakes.

It's not thick enough to settle of course after all the recent heavy rain, but it's still one of the first snow showers seen in Leeds this winter.
