UK braced for more snow

The United Kingdom''s wait for spring continues following heavy snowfall overnight on Tuesday.

Temperature fell to -10 degrees in some parts of the country, making it the coldest winter night in five years.

The Met Office issued a severe weather warning in London, Scotland, the East Midlands, the north-east and the south-east.

The forecast is for another six inches of snow over the coming 24 hours, accompanied by strong easterly winds.

The snow showers will inevitably bring travel chaos, it said.

Long delays and cancellations on bus, rail and air travel should be expected.

London City airport has no flights going in and out. A similar situation is being faced in Glasgow while Newcastle airport is facing difficulties.

Hundreds of schools around the country are closed.

Authorities are warning people to be vigilent after four people died yesterday in a road-traffic accident.
