YORKSHIRE DALES: Rangers at Malham Tarn were forced to leave at 10:30 yesterday morning as the snowfall became heavy. Malham Tarn is England’s highest freshwater lake and home to water voles and otters. Ranger Roisin wasn’t worried about the snow, which is the first of 2017, damaging the estate’s wildlife. “We find that snow is the only thing that comes out early,” she said.
