Icy blizzard brings Boston to standstill

The blizzard which narrowly missed New York on Tuesday has instead dumped up to a metre of snow on New England in the US.

With winds of more than 100 km/h (62 mph), it also caused flooding in some areas along the East Coast.

Blizzard warnings remain along the coast from Long Island to Maine.

Gary O'Donoghue reports from Massachusetts.
