Travel disruption as heavy snow hits central Europe

Heavy snow is causing severe disruption for those travelling in central Europe this weekend.

In Greece, a 66-year-old woman was found dead and two men were reported missing near Athens after blizzards struck part of the country. 

Temperatures in northern and central Greece have stayed below zero degrees centigrade for the last few days.
