UK snow: Schools and transport hit by disruption
Hundreds of schools have been closed and transport disrupted as a band of heavy snow affects most of the UK.
Heathrow Airport cancelled 70 flights and runways at Bristol, Cardiff and Southampton airports were closed. There are hazardous conditions on many roads.
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.
