Rooftops are covered in snow in Belfast

The bad weather has left thousands of homes without electricity.

Up to 14,000 properties in Northern Ireland, 10,000 in Scotland and 2,000 in Wales are still without power as energy firms try to reconnect them.

Weather warnings also remain in place across much of the UK after two days of wintery conditions.

The Met Office has warned that snow will melt on roads and pavements but will refreeze at night to give icy patches.

Thick snow is still covering many roads this morning. Some rescue vehicles got stuck themselves. Many people had to dump their cars and spend the night in shelters. But it didn't stop this couple getting married - apart from a quick change of shoes for the bride!

Have you lost power?

"I just got my laptop back on but me and my dog have been out in the snow. I wish we can have more because then school will be closed."
