The Beast from the East swept across the region overnight leaving a thick blanket of snow over everything in its path.

These awesome aerial shots were taken by Jeyan Chandra, from Carlton Colville, and show the wide-reaching impact of the snow across Lowestoft and its surrounding areas.

When the 36-year-old awoke this morning he jumped at the chance to fire up his drone and see what he could capture.

He said: “Anytime I have a day off I like to take the drone out.

“It has been a hobby of mine for the past few months.”

This is the first time Mr Chandra has had the opportunity to use the equipment in the snow.

He said: “They say not to use the drone when the temperature drops to the minuses so I didn’t fly it far.

“I am so happy I did though and got some very nice photos.”
