A blanket of snow has covered London and parts of the UK causing major travel disruption on the roads and at airports - with more than 300 flight cancellations.

Temperatures have dropped to minus ten degrees Celsius in some areas in recent days.

There are yellow alerts for snow, fog and frost in several areas including the southeast and southwest of England, and the north of Scotland.

The snow has also affected Poland with delays and disruption on public transport and roads.

Meteorologists say the country will be in the grip of freezing conditions as temperatures will drop to minus 10 to 15 degrees Celsius, possibly reaching minus 20.

Flights were cancelled, trains were delayed and ferries were disrupted by the strong winds.
