MailOnline readers share photos of Britain in snow

A second day of heavy snow has sparked travel chaos, with hundreds of schools forced to close across the country.

Despite the inconvenience, MailOnline readers from across the country have seized the chance to take these brilliant images of Britain covered in thick layers of snow. 

Readers from Glasgow, Kent and Surrey have sent in their images from around their homes, with thick layers of snow a common feature throughout.

Photographs from Medway, Epsom and Cumbria also feature following a night of sub-zero temperatures and wintry conditions.

The ‘Beast from the East’ has heaped more misery on commuters, with trains, planes and road traffic also affected by the adverse weather conditions.
