Snow hits UK: Ice an 'issue' in Midlands
Hundreds of schools have been closed and transport disrupted as a band of heavy snow affects most of the UK.
Cardiff, Bristol and Southampton airports are closed and part of the M4 is shut near Bath. Train companies have put revised timetables in place.
A rare red Met Office warning for snow is in place for parts of Wales, meaning severe disruption is likely.
There is an amber warning for Northern Ireland and most of England, with snow also due in parts of Scotland.
