Newmarket has first snow of 2020 as Met Office forecasts heavy rain




Newmarket and the surrounding towns and villages have experienced their first snowfall of 2020, with heavy rain forecast to hit the town tomorrow.

Wet conditions have helped to ensure this morning's snow has not settled on roads, leading to minimal travel problems.

The Met Office did issue a yellow weather warning overnight for snow, but it ended at midday today.
