It might not have been the deepest snowfall Dereham has ever seen but many people are asking whether they were the biggest snowflakes.

These pictures taken by Gordon Olley, well known Dereham photographer and owner of Breckland Photographic, show how the town was suddenly deluged by the white stuff during a snowstorm this morning, taking many motorists and pedestrians by surprise.

'They weren't quite the size of your fist but people were asking me whether they were the biggest ever seen in Dereham,' he said.

Although the conditions were not as dramatic as those experienced in the south and west of the country it showed how weather conditions can change in an instant and catch everyone out.
