UK snow causes transport changes

Icy conditions keep communters from work and students from school.

    Europe is still suffering with freezing temperatures and heavy snow, causing treacherous conditions and travel chaos across the continent.

    For around three weeks, freezing Arctic winds have been sweeping across the continent with the unusual weather pattern set to continue until the latter part of the month.

    In Britain, millions of people are facing another day of icy conditions as the worst winter for 30 years continues.

    Transport links across the country have been disrupted leaving thousands of people unable to get to work.

    But some children, who have found their schools closed, have found alternative forms of transport.
