Ice and snow hit UK travel


Travel has been affected in the UK as a result of heavy snowfall, with disruption to road and train journeys.

Flights are suspended at East Midlands, Manchester and Leeds Bradford airports, and Heathrow has cancelled one in 10 flights because of poor visibility.

Snow is currently falling in northern England and southern and eastern Scotland, where Met Office amber "be prepared" warnings are in force.

Danny Savage reports from Consett, Jenny Hill is in Huddersfield and John Andrew reports from Heathrow Airport.
