The European cold snap is maintaining its icy grip on the continent, causing widespread chaos.
On Saturday it was Germany suffering the worst of the snow and winds. Hundreds of road accidents were reported, causing traffic jams on several main roads.
There was more disruption at the country’s biggest airport in Frankfurt. By midday, some 200 scheduled flights had been cancelled, stranding thousands of passengers.
In the French capital there were picture postcard views aplenty. But those hoping to see the city from the top of the Eiffel Tower were disappointed.
Across the channel in the UK, the country was bracing itself for another load of snow. Temperatures hit a low of minus 21 degrees Celsius in northern Scotland.
Across the country, roads remained dangerously icy, as a salt shortage forced local authorities to cut back on gritting operations.
Even Spain has failed to escape the Arctic conditions, with traffic severely hampered in northern and central regions.
Forecasters are predicting the freezing European temperatures will continue till the middle of the month.
