  13. US football match goes ahead despite blizzard

    Buffalo Bills Sunday 10 December Reuters

    If you thought the snow was bad in the UK on Sunday, spare a thought for the players and fans of NFL teams the Buffalo Bills and the Indianapolis Colts.

    Their match - at New Era Field, in New York state - took place in a blizzard, which caused players to skid and slide throughout.

    On the eve of the match, the Bills had asked fans to come to the stadium to help shovel snow, but the weather worsened during Sunday's game.

    The Bills supporters who did brave the conditions went home happy - having seen their team win 13-7 in overtime.

  16. Today's papers: Big freeze to get worse?

    Daily Express and Guardian

    Most of Monday's national newspapers have front page photos of large swathes of Britain covered by a blanket of snow.

    The Daily Telegraph says Highways England claimed much of Sunday's disruption on the roads was actually due to a lack of cars.

    It quotes an official saying that the gritters relied on traffic spreading the salt, but most people heeded warnings not to travel unless absolutely necessary.
