ARMED officers have had a busy few days across North Wales and Cheshire this week.

The Cheshire Police and North Wales Police Alliance Armed Policing Unit has released images showing officers conducting a training exercise in a snowy North Wales woodland.

A spokesman for the team tweeted: "No snowmen were harmed in today’s drills."

The team has also been out patrolling across both North Wales and Cheshire and urged drivers to follow safety advice from both forces throughout the current cold snap.
