The Met Office had issued warnings, Transport for London (TfL) said it had prepared - but in the event, in the capital yesterday's snow flurry proved pretty disappointing.

That didn't stop Londoners from taking to Twitter to express their excitement, though. Here are the best tweets about #Snowmageddon.

Some felt like they had been cruelly deceived.

Most soldiered on, despite the horrors.

Still - for one of our colleagues, it was a chance to bring out his lyrical side.

The good news? More sleet is due this morning. Hang on in there, London...
