Snow and freezing conditions disrupted various forms of travel across Western Europe today.

Eurostar train service between London and Paris was halted and plows couldn’t keep up with the snow at Frankfurt Airport where hundreds of flights were cancelled.

Forecasters say the snow was the result of cold air from Russia colliding with a low pressure system over northern France.

Motorists were also stuck in their cars in southern England where as much as 15 cm of snow fell.
