Heavy snow has returned with a vengeance in some parts of Europe.

Germany is one the countries suffering from severe winter conditions.

Among at least five weather-related deaths reported, one man was killed trying to save his dog who fell into a frozen lake.

There is also traffic chaos … and it is not just planes, trains and on the roads.

One man on a river boat said: “We wanted to take our cargo to the Netherlands, but then we had problems. That’s why we have to unload the cargo here, and we can’t go on.”

France is being warned about the likelihood of heavy snowfalls in the coming hours, and northern Italy is also suffering.

Flights have been cancelled and school closures are expected.
