Traffic chaos as snow blocks Spanish motorway
Text size Aa Aa

The European winter is not letting up. In Spain heavy snow forced a motorway north of Madrid to close, trapping thousands of drivers for several hours overnight on Friday into Saturday.

Snowploughs were unable to reach the scene on the A-6 because cars blocked the route.

The road was re-opened later but drivers were warned to stay at home unless their trip was absolutely necessary.
