Snow, ice and freezing rain cause misery across UK

Entire train services stopped running. Major stations were closed. Thousands of flights have been cancelled. The advice, say experts, is not to travel at all. Snow, ice and freezing rain are causing yet more misery around the country, while heavy rain and thawing snow have triggered flood alerts for many areas too.

Six people have now lost their lives in the extreme weather, including a homeless man who died while sleeping in a tent in freezing temperatures.
