For the past week, snow was more than just a single story, it encompassed many stories. This week's Best of Britain features a selection of pictures ranging from a sheep in a winter landscape to students determined to protest despite the snow. There's a West Ham United player frolicking after scoring a goal and the trace footprints of pedestrians walking down a London street.

This week's Best of Britain photos involve reflections of the literal as well as the metaphorical. From an artist's work consisting of giant upside down mirrors, mourners lining Wootton Bassett, a portrait of pensioners hit by the recent "death bonds" scandal, to Gordon Brown speaking at the Labour Party's annual conference.
from Photographers' Blog:
A historic market town with a distinctive 17th century town hall, Wootton Bassett is worth a visit – but the crowds that gather here with grim regularity are rarely interested in the tourist sites. Instead, as British troops face a deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, Wootton Bassett, west of London, has become synonymous with the repatriation of soldiers killed in action.
