General election 2019: At polling stations in England
Father Christmas helped spread some festive cheer to voters as a Santa's grotto was one of the many unusual places transformed into polling stations for the snap general election.
Voters got some respite from the cold while they cast their votes but pet pooches weren't so lucky.
And, in some places they have had to trudge through the snow to get to the ballot box.
Being the first December general election since 1923, it's unsurprising inclement weather is part of the experience.
