How could snow trapped man survive for two months?

A Swedish man claims he has survived being trapped in his snow-covered car for two months with hardly any food, police say.

The car was found on Friday at the end of a forest track more than 1 km (0.6 miles) from a main road in northern Sweden.

Police say the temperature in the area had recently dropped to -30C (-22F).

The man, who was too weak to utter more than a few words, said he had been inside since 19 December.

Survival expert Dale Collett told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire it was an incredible story.
