Four years ago, Sheffield and South Yorkshire was coated white after an incredible 12 inches of snow brought the region to a standstill.

Hundreds of schools were shut, bus services suspended in Sheffield, Doncaster and Rotherham and flights cancelled at Robin Hood Airport.

The extreme conditions meant hospitals told patients not to attend appointments unless they were urgent, while Sheffield Council called off a full council meeting for the first time ever.

And around 100 motorists had to spend a night inside South Anston Methodist Chapel after becoming stranded on the A57.

But many made the most of the snowy conditions, heading out on sleds to enjoy the winter weather.

This year has been considerably more mild, with the forecast for the coming week predicting rain, drizzle and fog rather than any more of the white stuff.
