Snow has finally arrived in the capital as frenzied commuters capture the fall during rush hour.

After a day of heavy rain, forecasters' predictions of snow burst into reality as flakes began to fall in place of rain this evening.

The sight of a white downpour has both delighted and horrified Londoners, with many anticipating delays in their journeys home.

Some who denied it was snow and pointed out it was sleet quickly remarked that it had turned into snowflakes.

But there was also concern over the tubes experiencing difficulty in running as normal.

Pictures show the white blanket settling in Harrow on the Hill and Wimbledon, much to the excitement of residents.

And of course, nothing says London snow quite as much as a good sarcastic social media remark on the pitiful amount in some areas.
