People all around the Fens woke up on Sunday (December 10) to what looked to be a scene from a Christmas film - here’s what Fenland photographers captured from Ely’s snow day.

Ely park filled with children and adults playing in the snow, sledging down the hills, making snowmen and having snowball fights.

For an occasion as rare as snow in the Fens, people came from all over the city to have some short term fun in the frozen white stuff.

Mike Rouse documented the morning with a set of photographs, showing the snow covered Ely Cathedral, surrounded by adults and children laughing and smiling.

With snow not on the forecast in the Fens for a long time, it was a case of enjoy it whilst it lasts – the thought of a white Christmas is still nothing but a distant dream.
