Forecasters are refusing to rule out Cornwall having a white Christmas.

But they say it is too early to say for sure.

This time last year the Duchy had already shivered in the depths of the big freeze which saw some places cut off by snow.

But this year milder temperatures have meant one of the warmest Novembers on record.

Helen Chivers from the Met Office said, "When you get changeable weather like you've got at the moment you get spells of wind and rain but then you get spells of cooler weather. If you get the winds turning to the north when those cooler spells come along then there's the chance of snow showers coming."
