SPRING officially arrived on Friday...but you would hardly know it as a blanket of snow across the district, giving many families an unusual Easter.

In Huntingdon, many dug out their toboggans and headed to Castle Hill for an unexpected Easter day treat.

A number of people decided to mark Easter by building snow bunnies, including the Rhodes-Elson family, from Little Paxton.

Mum Michaela said: "It didn't seem right to build a snowman in March, so we built a snow bunny instead."

In Wyton-on-the-Hill, Laura Humphreys managed to snap a photo next to the giant snowman she helped build before snow-vandals destroyed it.

She said: "My brother and sister were upset that someone destroyed the snowman but luckily we created a snowdog in the back garden, based on our family dog Sheba, who didn't know what to make of it.
