Heavy snow and travel disruptions hit Paris region

Snow and ice have paralysed much of the region around the French capital Paris, stranding thousands of motorists and air passengers for the night.

Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux asked drivers to leave their vehicles at home after 11cm (4in) of snow fell on Paris, the most since 1987.

Motorists in Roissy and Velizy faced severe travel disruptions overnight.
