Commuters in Stamford Street had to dodge flying snow when London Nautical School pupils staged an impromptu snowball fight across the traffic.

Meanwhile Southwark Council began gritting Bankside and some footpaths on residential estates.

There was disruption on the railway outside Waterloo due to points failures caused by the cold weather.
