Photography enthusiasts today braved the big freeze in a bid to record some of the most severe snow conditions seen in recent years.

As commuters battled to get to work, photographers made the most of the opportunity as the worst snow for 18 years hit central London.

The favourable photo conditions were boosted by a distinct lack of Police Community Support Officers patrolling the capital’s South Bank.

The ‘photography police’ today appear to have other priorities, as photographers continue undisturbed near prime London tourist attractions, such as the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.
