Spurs v Manchester Utd is on

Tottenham's Premier League match against Manchester United this afternoon will go ahead.

The 4pm kick-off between the two sides had been put in danger because of heavy snowfall in the capital.

Ground staff had been working hard to keep the pitch at White Hart Lane clear but with just over two hours to go the match was still in doubt with snow continuing to fall.

But the officials carried out an inspection of the pitch at 2.50pm and decided the surface was playable, and the match goes ahead.
