Snow falls in Warwick

Dionne Sambrook captured this image of snow at Warwick's Lord Leycester Hospital

SNOW is not often spotted in June but this week a layer of the white stuff turned Warwick into a Dickensian Christmas scene – literally.

The streets outside the town’s historic Lord Leycester Hospital were covered in the fake flakes courtesy of none other than Tom Hardy and his team, who were filming scenes for a new adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

Although the man himself has not been spotted on set, he is executive producer of the remake along with Ridley Scott and others, including writer Steven Knight and has lined up a star-studded cast including Guy Pearce as Scrooge.
