CHILDREN were out enjoying a flurry of Spring snow at the weekend.

CHILDREN were out enjoying a flurry of Spring snow at the weekend.

After making the most of the spring sunshine last Friday afternoon, people across the South East woke up on Sunday morning to find a thick blanket of snow.

Although children made the most of it by sledging in Danson Park, Welling and building snowmen in the Priory Gardens, Orpington and Chislehurst Common, the downfall caused even more chaos for travellers.

British Airways cancelled 138 of its London flights on Sunday.

Early morning snowfall left an area stretching from northern Scotland to the south coast of England carpeted with up to 3ins of snow and caused delays for drivers.

Meteorologists are predicting chilly conditions will continue this week.

A spokesman at the Met Office said: "It was a very cold day for April, with temperatures of 3C to 6C. The average for this time of year is generally 10C or 11C."

The Met Office warned this summer is likely to be hotter and wetter than usual.

It is predicting a return to the traditional British summer of 'three fine days and then a thunderstorm'.
