Austria transport halted after heavy snow and gales

Heavier than usual snowfall and high winds have caused chaos on roads and railways in many areas of Austria.

Part of a major railway route has been shut down in the west of the country, and some villages and tourist resorts have been cut off.

Up to 1.2 metres (4ft) of fresh snow has been recorded in some areas since Thursday.

Nadine Dukeson reports.
