The Met office issued a ‘very significant’ snow warning as Britain hit a winter low of -13.6C last night.
In many parts the snow is now turning to sleet, but continues to settle and spread into the Southern and Eastern parts of Britain.
The Weather warning came with travel alerts as commutes will be affected today with public transport delays and possible strandings on rural roads.
There is an “Amber warning” for snow and ice so drive carefully.
Rail and air travel could be affected so check with travel companies.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
