Katie Love of Halifax Ladies hockey team is pictured in action at Park Lane on Saturday - a day when the local footall, rugby union and rugby league was wiped out by the weather.

Snow started to fall in Halifax around lunchtime on Saturday and spread throughout Calderdale throughout the afternoon.

Forecasters had predicted as much as six inches of snow this weekend across the country but Calderdale survived relatively unscathed with just a few inches covering roads and pavements.
