At around 20:00 GMT on Saturday, Derbyshire Police reported “sudden snow” had left dozens of vehicles and their occupants stranded in the Goyt Valley — many were caught off-guard by how quickly the weather changed, reads the BBC article.n a decade+.

Usually, it's the neighbours that come knocking, however, a huge snow wall has formed outside the front door of this Moray family's home - completely blocking access.

The Robertsons from Glenrinnes have watched as snow crept closer towards their home over the last few days.

And now, after several heavy drifts, the family are now unable to use their front door.

Mum Laurie Robertson took to social media to share images of the entrance to her house completely blocked.

Mrs Robertson said: "We are up one of the back roads so if there is snow, more often than not its drifts if there is any wind.

The Irish sea turned to ice and the Thames froze over for the first time in 60 years after temperatures in Britain plunged to record lows.

Seagulls perched on the frozen river's surface at Teddington, south west London, on Friday as it iced over for the first time since Britain's Big Freeze in 1963. And even the waves on Aldingham beach in Cumbria ground to a halt as the mercury plummeted.

Temperatures in Ravensworth, North Yorkshire, dropped to minus 15.3C overnight on Thursday, a record February low for England. And the cold snap looks set to continue as bookies slashed the odds on Valentine's day being the coldest on record to 7/2.

Images of what appears to be a hovering ship have been captured as the result of a rare optical illusion off the coast of England.

David Morris took a photo of the ship near Falmouth, Cornwall.

BBC meteorologist David Braine said the "superior mirage" occurred because of "special atmospheric conditions that bend light".

He said the illusion is common in the Arctic, but can appear "very rarely" in the UK during winter.
