Many people in and around Brussels woke up to snow on the roofs of their cars and in their gardens on Monday morning.

Much of Belgiumis experiencing a white Easter with snow falling or having fallen at locations across the region. The winter conditions are exceptional for late March. Bellow average temperatures have been recorded at weather stations all over Flanders during the past couple of days.

The west of the country was the first to experience snow fall on Sunday afternoon.

The snow spread east during the evening and had reached Ghent by 7pm.

Many people in and around Brussels woke up to snow on the roofs of their cars and in their gardens on Monday morning.

Rural Limburg was also covered by a blanket of snow.

The snowfall and colder than average temperatures are good news for the operators of langlauf skiing facilities in the Belgian Ardennes.

However, fruit and vegetable farmers and gardeners are less happy with the cold snap.

The last time that temperatures in late March were so low was back in 1975.
