ANYONE dreaming of a white Christmas in Ipswich could see their wish come true, according to the bookies.

The chance of snowfall to make a picture-perfect Christmas Day rose sharply today after the coldest night of the winter was followed by the year's first flakes of snow.

And more snow is expected over the coming days - with 10cms predicted to fall on Friday.

And punters who want to have a flutter on the snowflakes were can get odds of 2-1 from Ladbrokes on a white Christmas in Ipswich.

The odds for a snow-free Christmas day were 4-11.
