A mini-snowstorm in central London this morning may only have lasted for around 30 minutes or so, but it's been a while since we've seen such wintery spectacles in the city and it’s safe to say Londoners got pretty excited.

Including us:

Snow began falling in other parts of London on Thursday, and many have exploited the white dusting to take some picturesque, wintry shots.

But after reports of 'thundersnow' hitting the capital, the Met Office's warning of disruption to rail, road and air travel and TfL saying it'd stockpiled 100,000 tonnes of salt (enough for 139 days of ice!), some Londoners have been left underwhelmed at the weather. 

But hey, at least there won't be any crazy weather to get in the way of your commute home.
