Snow lands on Tour de Yorkshire route

Forget spring, parts of the Tour de Yorkshire route resembled scenes from a Christmas card yesterday.

With three days to go before the riders set off on Stage 1, and Twitter users have been sharing pictures of snow falling on the route.

The roads into Settle, which hosts the race on Friday, and around Pateley Bridge were among those affected.

Fear not, say forecasters, the weather is set to improve slightly by the time the peloton sets off, although wet and cold conditions are expected in the Dales.

Let's hope we don't see a repeat of these images!
