Snow disruption hits Paris transport

Paris has been covered in a blanket of snow which has led to disruption on the French capital's motorways and airports.

Charles de Gaulle-Roissy airport was closed and the city's bus network was paralysed, officials said. The Eiffel Tower was also closed.

The runways at Orly airport were earlier shut for about half an hour to allow workers to clear snow.
