WHAT a difference a year makes...

This time last year Sheffield was basking in a mad March heatwave and balmy temperatures of 20 degrees.

City centre shoppers sunbathed under cloudless blue skies, and children splashed in the waters of the Peace Gardens fountains.

Exactly a year on, South Yorkshire is gripped in the icy clutches of yet more snow - with blizzards predicted throughout today.

Forecasters said the mercury could plummet as low as minus two.
