Record snow floods Moscow streets

Record snow fall followed by a rise in temperatures has caused flooding in some parts of Moscow.

The heaviest March snowfall for 50 years saw almost a month's worth of snow fall in 24 hours.

Authorities say they have cleared 300,000 cubic metres of snow since Wednesday, with a predicted drop in temperatures expected to turn what is left of the melted snow back into ice.
