Snow continues to cause disruption

Snow is falling again today. This is the view in Trowbridge at 12:00 today. The roads have become treacherous and motorists are again being advised to only travel if it is totally necessary.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people are stuck at Heathrow airport as flights have been cancelled as many people face up to the fact that they may not be able to get away this christmas.

Southern England and south Wales have been most heavily hit, with 5-10cm of snow falling today. 

The Wales Ambulance Service has warned of potential "long delays" in responding to 999 calls.

There were also warnings of more heavy snow for much of Scotland and north-east England, with up to 10cm of snow expected in northern Scotland.



The lowest UK temperature overnight, recorded in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, was thought to be -19.6C. Northern Ireland had another bitterly cold night, with -18C recorded at Castlederg in County Tyrone
