Big Air bronze medallist back on board freestyling around snowy Essex town.

Not content with his Big Air bronze medal in February, Billy Morgan joined UK snow pal Paddy Graham in taming the Beast from the East on March 1.

The snowboarder, 28, freestyled around Leigh-on-Sea's handrails and footbridges in Essex filmed by Graham - one of the world's best freeskiers.

- Morgan's bronze meant he was the first ever Team GB male to win a #snowboard medal.

- Back in 2015, Morgan was also the first man in history to pull off a #snowboard Backside Quadruple Cork 1800°, days before surgery on his knee.

- The Beast from the East is sudden stratospheric warming over the Arctic causing the northern polar jet stream to draw in cold air from the east.

- Temperatures have not been this low in the UK since 1991, while Storm Emma could also sweep into the UK from Portugal and France.
